Painted Lace

http://www.joggles.com/ has 2 video tutorials on painting lace with Dynaflow and one other paint that I didn't have. I've painted lace with the dyes for that, but with paint you don't have to worry about the type of lace. It seems to work on anything.
Each day I would do a covered board of one color group to see what would happen.

A friend gave me some laces; some I bought; and some are leftovers from when my adult daughter was little, and I was putting them on dresses I sewed for her.

This is very adictive. Now I need to think of way to use them.

Wow, you have a fabulous stash of lace and now it is all beautifully colored. While all the colors are gorgeous the top one grabs me the most.

I've done this before, and it's awesome! It's also fun to take colored lace (like black) and add embellishments to it with opaque metallic fabric paint... I used some for a vest's "epaulets" a while back and it was quite effective. Fun fun stuff!!!
