painting lace


At a booth at the quilt show in Chicago I tried painting lace. It was easy & fun. I decided not to buy anything from Sara's Bloom Embellishments. I have Setacolor paints tucked away with fabric & Mickey Lawler's book Skydyes.
Last week I bought this gorgeous piece of white lace for $1. It is 11 " wide and 6 feet long- plenty of lace to paint!! Off to paint!!

Do you paint it different colours? Fabric paint or dye? Have you tried stamping? I have indonesian wooden stamps from granville, but you could carve them from lino (so EASY to use) You could make your own fabrics.
