Color on Lace with Allie Aller, Part 3

Quilters Newsletter Workshop | Series 100 | Episode 112, Part 3

The color medium you choose for coloring lace quilt embellishments will have an effect on the lace fibers. Dyes or inks may allow the lace to retain its sheen as the lace absorbs the color, but acrylic paints will sit on top of the fibers. Watch and see the differences. Also learn how clear aloe gel plays a role in coloring on lace. To watch more episodes of Quilters Newsletter Workshop visit!

  1. I would love to see the 3 video’s about coloring lace, etc… but I can’t get it to work. I tried to find the “tools bar” and follow the procedure that was going to make this possible, but I have the new Windows 8, and I can’t find the tools tab. If you will tell me how/where to find it I would be happy to try what you suggested as I’m a paid (several years) subscriber and this is the first time I’ve had any trouble. thank you and please answer soon!!!
