    FAQ About Patterns

    Question: Where do I find the download I purchased?
    As soon as you make a purchase, you are directed to a Thank You page which will have a link to download your pattern.
    We also email you the 'Thank You' to your email inbox which includes the link to download your pattern. Please check your spam/junk box if you do not receive this.
    Question: I've clicked the download link and nothing happens, what should I do?
    Chances are the pattern is downloading in the background. Give it a moment then check your file app (iphone) or download folder (in My Files or File Manager on android) to see if the file is there. If it isn't, before trying again, try the suggestions in the trouble downloading question below.
    Question: I'm having trouble downloading the pattern, is there anything I should do?
    Yes, the most important thing to do is turn off any popup blocker. Popup blockers prevent the download window from being seen by you, yet we will not know about it so each time you try, it will appear to us that you have attempted to download the pattern.
    Here is a full list of things to try:

    White 100% Cotton. It is extremely important that you get finely woven cotton. Regular muslins will make the paint seep because of the loosely woven fibers. I prefer to use White Pimatex Cotton from Kaufman. You can also use any fabric that has the letters "PFD" after it (prepared for dyeing). One landscape takes 1 1/2 yards

    at the most (including border), but you may want as much as 5 yards for any happy accidents. Michele has this on her Web site.

    You will also want 2-3 yards of the white Pimatex to practice all the techniques in PartOne.

    Paint - Setacolor from Pebeo

    • Transparent 10 pack: Ten 45-milliliter bottles in an assortment of all of the colors necessary.
    • Setacolor Pearl - gold and pearl in 45 mL bottles

    These will be available from Michele or you can find them (


    If you cannot find the 10 pack and want to buy the individual containers, these are the colors in the 10 pack: Black Lake; Oriental Red; Cardinal Red; Bright Orange; Vermillion; Lemon Yellow; Parma Violet; Ultramarine Blue; Cobalt Blue; Emerald Green.

    If you have the opportunity, I like to add these to the mix: Buttercup Yellow; Velvet Brown; Red Ochre; Moss Green.


    • Brushes - foam brushes you can get in any hardware store in a variety of sizes, assorted brushes with natural bristles - I like "hake" brushes the best - they hold a lot of paint.
    • Sponges - large and small sea sponges to add different effects (for rocks, and other textures)

    Painting Surface

    • Foam core - You can get this light firm board from any craft store. OR
    • Foam-ula - This is PINK insulation you can find at Home Depot. Cut it in half and tape or glue the two pieces together.

    Cover either with white contact paper. It is also a good idea to have a plastic drop cloth if you are doing this inside.

    Other Stuff

    • spray bottle
    • small containers to hold paint (plastic microwave dinner plates, bowls, etc.)
    • paper towels or old cloths
    • gloves / apron (or wear old clothes!)
    • coarse sea salt (the bigger kind)
    • cheesecloth (available in canning section of grocery store)


    • assortment of leaves to make sunprints for the borders!
    • color wheel or good book on color mixing to help get just the right colors

    For Finishing the Landscape

    Backing and batting the size of finished piece

    Assortment of threads, yarns, to decorate the piece. We will not be doing this until Part Three, so you can wait to see the painted piece before deciding how you want to embellish it.

    You can order threads from (

    If you think you might want to appliqué something to the foreground (like the reeds) make sure you have some sort of stabilizer (I use Sulky Tear Easy)
