Victorian - Tinting on fabic with Prismacolor pencils - Enter with a Glad Heart

Hello friends! This is my latest project of tinting on fabric with Prismacolor pencils. Once again, I used a plain piece of white muslin for my canvas. This time, I thought it would be fun to take pictures as I worked my way through. This project is from a pattern by Juliet Martin from her book Victorian Potpourri (1991).

First, of course, I need to transfer the pattern onto the muslin. I use the Light Tracer light box by Artograph and a Micron 02 (0.30mm) ink pen. You can also tape your pattern and fabric to a window and do your tracing that way.
