I know it's been a while since I've posted. I have no real excuse. You know how life goes sometimes.
First up are some laces I have dyed. The first 2 pictures are of laces dyed with Ribbonsmyth dyes. I really like these. The only problem with them is that the only blue they have really stinks. It is called English Blue, it is really more greenish grey than blue. So they blues you see are ones that I used food dyes and vinegar with, These really tend to bleed and fade and are not colorfast at all. I need to find a good blue microwave dye. So if you know of any please let me know.
The next two pictures are laces that I painted using fabric paint. You get great colors with these, however it tends to be stiff when dry. They must be very diluted with water and painted lightly in several coats, As these are intended for purses I don't think it will make as much difference since they won't be in as much contact with the skin as compared to clothing.
You will see in the last 2 pics I ahve some VERY bright greens.Don't fear, there is a plan for them. I am going to use them in some tinkerbell bags.
My friend Janet and I dyed a bunch of lace here at my house the other day. I think I have her hooked.It wouldbe so easy to spend days dyeing lace.
Well off to do some more
