I Want That! Hedi Kyle edition
Hedi had some of the coolest supplies for us to play with at her workshop. I was already familiar with the gravestone rubbing wax having played with it during a workshop with Julie Chen at Haystack. If this collection is good enough for these two big guns, then I wouldn’t sneeze at having some for myself.
They look like little hard chunks of bizarro cheese. WANT.
Then there were these fantastic neon colored pencils.
Love the color names. Do I know what I’d do with them? No. WANT.
Last, but not least, the tools that made my heart flutter – Japanese stencil brushes. Oh.my.goodness. The gorgeousness of these things. WANT.
They have bamboo handles and deer hair bristles. They offer the perfect amount of pressure when doing pochoir work. They’re simply exquisite.
And they’re handmade in Kyoto. Where I was in 2016.
Why didn’t I know about these before my trip to Japan? I totally could have gotten them there! Bwahahahah!
I can still buy them online, but it’s just not the same (plus they’re expensive). If you’re interested in getting some for yourself, here are your options:
