Fragmented Script Rubbing Technique

© Laura Murray 2011

Many people have asked me to demonstrate how I created the fabric used in my Swag Bag and Upline Jacket samples. The technique is now available as a downloadable PDF file. The idea is to create an elegant, subtle fabric by using a texture with script, and randomly placing fragments across the surface using three coordinating paintstik colors.


  • Fabric in sufficient quantities for your specific project, pressed smoothly.
  • Three iridescent Paintstik colors — gold, copper and brown are used in my samples.
  • Texture – Fantasy Script stamp by Laura Murray Designs, or other script textures.
  • Temporary spray adhesive, such as Sulky KK2000, 404, etc.
