I use the Silhouette to make patterns for my paintings. Here I copied the humming bird. Silhouette cut it on Mactac and then I placed it on my tile. I then painted the background and then removed the Mactac. I then painted in the bird. So easy when you can’t draw.
I am providing links for most of the material and giving suggestions for others. I am an associate for some of these links.
For my American friends: I use mostly Amazon and JoAnn Fabrics. After shopping around this is where I have found the best prices. If you are buying in quantity, JoAnn has fantastic sales. They often have 20% on your whole order, even when the inks are already discounted.
For my Canadian friends, I have found the Shades of Clay offers the best prices and service. They area online Canadian store. I have found their prices to be the best in Canada. There service is excellent. They usually ship, the day you order. If you find better, please let me know.

The links I provide, are for the least expensive for each site, however it does not hurt to shop around, as what is a good price today, may not be the same tomorrow. For some of the links I may get paid as an associate. This, however, does not affect the price you pay. It does help me keep the site going.
