Thanks, Patter. Awesome post!

I just finished my first bunches. I love how they came out! I did 6 different color combinations. It was fun to do and I am loving the results. I just ordered some more seam binding in plain white. I can't imagine the dying effects would be different (or noticeably, anyway) if using white vs. eggshell. We shall see!

This is making me want to buy lots more Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, lol. Has anyone heard about trying other mists? I think Patter said she used the Smooch spritz. I wonder about the Tattered Angels chalk sprays, too. You could maybe use those for color and then add a shimmery mist if you wanted. Or just do the chalk colors if you want a more matte look???

I'd be interested in hearing about what kinds of sprays you all have used and what you favorite colors have been.

You all are welcome! And the mists I use are:

**Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
**Maya Road Mists
**Clearsnap Smooch Spritz
**SU reinkers/water in Mini Mister

All work great. The Maya Road Mists have a very bold color to them and some have lots of glitter! I have the Tattered Angles Chalkboard Mists but not sure I like them. I will try on some seam binding shortly and post the results.

What an informative thread! I was wondering if colouring the seam binding with Copics, then scrunching and letting it dry would work?

I just threw some lengths of the rayon seam binding in some rit dye baths that I made up in some tupperware containers. I used scarlet and denim blue dye. We will see how it turns out. I figure I don't have to leave it in there too long, as it will not be going into the laundry like clothing would.

Buy my rayon seam tape by the roll from fabric.com
It is $9.00 a roll in a bazillion colors, but with white you can make any color. My lazy way of dyeing it is to take a plastic sandwich bag, swipe a bit of distress ink on the inside surface of the bag , add a few drops of water, and drop in the binding. Seal the bag and you can scrunch and rescrunch it without touching it. You could add a squirt of any of you 'mists as well. The effect I get is of great hand dyed variation. Eeeasy does it.

Default just made some

Hiya all,
I just made some of this amazing ribbon!! oh how I love it!! I used a red dye and you'd have thought I'd .......sorry.......been butchering something.....my hands were sooo sooo red after they dying so the advise about using a bad is spot on!!! I tried it at first but it was too fiddly for me so got in and go dirty....aside from all of that I add different dye as I dry to get the colors I want and can change them as needed to what I'd like them to be. Or I am able to add more water......I have a mister bottle filled with perfect pearls n water .....Sherry Cheever advice and it is good advice.....she uses a glimmer mist to wet first....the diamonds one??? not sure on the name but no color only wet with a glitter in it......and then adds the dye to it.

I loved how mine turned out! I dried it with my ranger heat gun just turning and scrunching as I went to get the look I wanted and the seam binding just keeps the crinkle soo soo well!!!
thanks for all the advice gals!!
hugs,
V

Sounds fun Victoria. Instead of using Glimmer Mist to wet first, I just use water in a misting bottle. Works so much better if the seam binding is damp first.

Also, as far as inky hands, I have been doing a lot of mixed media since May, and I bought Invisible Care Lotion. I put it on my hands first, and ALL of the color washes off VERY easily when I am done. Love that stuff! A must have for me.

Awesome tip, Patter! I am going to have to get some of this stuff. Thanks for sharing. I've never heard of it, but it sounds wonderful!
