The December 2011/January 2012 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine came out. It has my product review of deColourant and deColourant Plus. The article summarizes the discoveries made during my play day with Lisa Quintana, Susan Pickrell, and Debra Bentley.
In short, deColourant is a fun product to play with, but it requires some experimentation to get good results. I could see how some textile artists would love using it, especially because it does not change the feel of the fabric at all, but it is messy and a little fussy. For the way I work, I think I prefer the directness of paint, and I’m generally willing to accept any additional stiffness as a result of using it. A complete description of our results is in the magazine.
And now for a give away! I have three issues that I’d love to pop in the mail. Enter a comment below and I’ll do a drawing on Thursday evening. That way I can put these in the mail Friday morning and you’ll get an extra after-Christmas gift.
