More Painted Lace


Textile Color by Jacquard comes in many, many colors...all are bright. No bright (IMHO) for lace, however they also have white and black...so, all colors can be "adjusted" to soften with use of the white.
 
I ordered a little sampler of the colors...it came all in one little grouping of bottles. A drop of color and a couple of drops of white...mix together...and have fun.
 
These are some of the pieces of lace that I played with. I generally liked the look, and the lace is not stiff. Will do more of this. Wondering how it would look on white lace?
 
So, if you want to play around...get the little package with multiple colors, and try it out!

You might have some fun too!

Here's the link to the kit on Amazon, so you can see what it looks like.

Beautiful dye job. I also use it to paint charms, then a layer of clear polish. :-)

Lovely work! Thanks for posting a link I will have to get some to dye silk ribbon flowers.

These are so pretty. A lot different from the ones we did at the retreat and I'm still using those dyes! I just finished doing 20 yards of white silk ribbon with it. Now I have to go look at the Amazon kit.

Thank you, Kathy. I have learned more from you than any blogger I follow. You're the best!

some very pretty pieces, I dye lace by just dropping silk paints onto it. It seems to work.
