The Benefits of Water Soluble Crayons

Rayna wondered why you would use Water Soluble Crayons instead of textile paint. Here are several reasons that I can think of. Clean up is much quicker, they are super easy to use, they are very compact for traveling, they don't change the hand of the fabric, and the most important reason of all is that I LOVE to experiment with new materials.
Twelve crayons in a compact tin.
Twelve jars of textile paint.
Don't get me wrong, I love textile paints and crayons won't replace my paint. Crayons are simply one more tool in my toolbox. I'll be traveling this summer, and crayons will be in my suitcase. You may find that crayons are exactly what you need for a particular situation. Options are good!

Thanks for the explanation, Judy. Makes sense. I do love that piece of fabric, by the way.

I just started playing with them myself -- what fun! I love seeing your experiments.
