Bite me, burn me, make me write bad checks...
Very nice job. Something very sexy about 40ish womens attire.

Hi. Yes the scarf is done with fine tip artist's pens. I also use them for eyes (iris and pupils), eyelashes, and some fine pattern textile detailing. Hmmm...which has just given me an idea .

Hi Biggles,

Great idea.

What brand? I tried one a while ago to paint/draw stripes on a thobe but the clear coat made it run.

Not too sure of the brands (they're various), but they are waterproof artist's pens/markers. I think the trick is to wait a day or two for the ink to be well and truly dry, and give several light coats of spray clear coat, and let completely dry between coats. I usually use Testor's Dull Coat, but I'm sure any brand (even Future/Tamiya Flat Coat) will work. Spray - don't brush!
BYW...what's a "thobe"?
