More dying lace!


School is out for the summer...and Aidan is here visiting! When Sommer brought her, she also stayed for a couple of days...and that was a nice treat for her mother (me!). We spent some time painting lace as I had a dozen little bottles of left-over Acid Dye mixtures...
 
We had fun! These above are wet and drying on a towel.

Here they are dry and pressed with the iron!
 

These are much lighter, even though dyed with the same exact mixtures...the lace must have some nylon threads...as they just don't hold a lot of dye. But, I like the pastels for some projects, so they will find a nice block to rest upon one day!

You almost inspire me to drag out my Oze Dyes and do some lace. These are so pretty!
