Crafty Chica Juicy Inks Fabric Markers

Saturday afternoon I received a wonderful surprise in the mail, my Crafty Chica product tester package! I opened it to find not one but two products, the Crafty Chica Juicy Inks fabric markers and an awesome set of iron on transfers.
I knew exactly what I wanted to to with my markers. For a while I've been playing with the idea of a Color-Your-Own Cucuy doll, or even an hand colored artist series of Cucuys. I ran over to my computer and printed out a blank Cucuy doll, transferred it on to some white cotton fabric, and headed into my studio to get to work.
As a loyal follower of the Crafty Chica I know she loves tie dye, so I decided to create a tie dye style print on to my Cucuy.
I started off by creating some star burst designs with the blue Juicy Ink marker. I then added the purple and green colors over the star bursts. The colors blended very easily and did not mess up the marker tips. I then blended the pink and orange colors onto the Cucuy's fur, to create a hair like texture. I let the inks set over night.
The next day I pinned and sewed the Cucuy together. Turned him, stuffed him and closed him up. I love the way he came out. He reminds me a little of the Grateful Dead bear. I can't wait to color a few more.
