For this one I used Oil of Olay face cleaners. They come with cleanser impregnated and you have to wet them to use. I've been using them for years and they take off every bit of
They are pretty disgusting after using, being covered in foundation and eye makeup, but a few years ago I started to save them. I would wait until I had bunch and then washed them and bleached them. Now I didn't save them for years, but I still had a nice pile. I thought I would somehow use them in a quilt, as I had used Dye Grabbers.
They used to come in these neat plastic boxes with a hinged lid. I never threw one away, being so useful for corralling small items. This one has picture hanging hardware. Now they just come wrapped in plastic and then in a paper box.
I cut them into 4 inch squares and then dyed them in a dark to light navy blue. They took the dye beautifully. After dyeing I put them on freezer paper and coated them with Stiffy, making them very stiff, which is just what I wanted.
The 8 foot length hanging in my living room window. I fully intended to stamp these with some Hot Potato stamps that I had, but no matter what kind of paint or ink I used, they didn't show up. I also tried stenciling with paint and Shiva paint sticks, but that didn't work either. So I went through my box of spangles and found a lot of flat round ones in a few different sizes and applied them with acrylic medium. It gave a somewhat sparkly polka-dot look.
So I am finished with that project. Now I am going on to Soy Wax resist dyeing. Please come back.
