New year – new tools!

I am always on the lookout for new ideas in the world of fabric flowers. This include different technology, tools, materials, ways of presenting the work.
At the end of last year I decided to be generous and get a silk floristry related gift for myself. I simply could not resist these gorgeous Japanese brushes!

They come in different widths for colouring different elements, from tiny flower petals to large stretches of fabric. I have tried them last week and can confirm that they an absolute wonder to work with! The main benefit is that they retain the liquid dye in the hairs and then release it evenly on the fabric. And they do not roll of the palette too ☺

Can’t wait to experiment more with my new brushes. Along with this set I have got some other tools, of which I will tell later.
