During my one hour this morning I finished up this new music corner and I just can't stop looking at it. Truth is I haven't reorganized the little three drawer boxes that fit so perfectly under the shelf. But that is next and on my way to work I stopped by and purchased two more. They hold little things and yet are right out there where I won't forget about my little stuff.
Yesterday Lynne Hoppe mentioned using Portfolio Oil Pastels in her fabric journal and I tell you bells went off in my head. I just recently purchased mine and this morning slipped right from "cleaning mode" to "experimenting mode".....again.
I wondered how they would work on fabric and specifically how they would wash. I wanted to compare them to Caran d'Ache which is what I have been using on fabric for my slow cloth.
Before washing, I did heat set with the iron. Here she is after washing. I washed with cold water first and then switched to hot and noticed that some of the color washed away with the hot.
However as you can see, she still has nice color.
If you are using fabric for a wall hanging washing it would not be an issue; however, I am using it on a quilt which will get washed. When I get home this afternoon, I will add more color to her. I ran out of time even after calling in late but I got an extra hour today. Sure makes me happy to start the day in "cleaning mode" and "experimenting mode"
