Color Magnet

I tried a new product called Jacquard Color Magnet over the weekend, and I love it.  Here is a piece of fabric that I first stamped with a slice off of a pool noodle that I dipped into the Color Magnet.

You let the Color Magnet dry completely, and it becomes a resist that attracts color.  I used some thickened dyes over the resist, let it batch for a couple of hours, and washed it all in the washing machine.

Very easy!  It's interesting that all of the color magnet areas turned blue, even though I used a blue dye, a tangerine, and an orange.  I would have thought they were going to turn brown...

One more day of work before four blissful days off!  Happy Thanksgiving!
