(Possible) supplies to bring: Something to try Inkodye with (fabric, wood, a bag) a paintbrush and/or sponge brush, a transparency of a photo or objects, masking tape, coins (to hold down objects)
Hobby Lobby is now carrying Inkodye. I just went today and they don't have that much left. If you'd like to go ahead and buy your own and bring it along, feel free. Or if you'd like to try it out before investing, you can use mine for $5.
If you just want to do something easy to get your feet wet with inkodye, you can bring some objects (such as leaves, flowers, safety pins, stickers or a stencil).
If you'd like to try a photo, you'll need to do the following:
1. Try to choose a good quality photo with a high resolution.
2. Be mindful of the size and adjust accordingly. Keep the image size no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 when printed.
3. Invert the image. The easiest way is to go to www.pixlr.com and choose the "Advanced" option. Open up your image and then go to "Adjustment" and choose "Desaturation" and that will give you a black and white image. Then under "Adjustment," choose "Invert." This will give you the image you'll now need to print onto a transparency. A good image for this will have 3-4 different color tones (so one being white, one being black and on or two grayish colors).
4. You can either try to print at home if you have transparencies or you can go to someplace like a FedEx Office and they'll print it for really cheap.
Check out the links I posted on the event page for more thorough info. But if you have any questions at all, just ask. We're going to have so much fun on Saturday!
