Need help finding an article

Bridget_Landry | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

*
There was an article in Threads magazine in 2000 (possibly 1999) on doing relief bleaching. That is, leaves and flowers were set on fabric, then the whole was sprayed with a bleach and water solution. This left a soft-edged bleached area with the relief pattern of whatever lay on the fabric in the middle. I’ve looked through all my back copies of Threads, but can’t find the article. I thought, if anyone remembered the article, I it would be easier to find, or at the very least I could order another copy of that issue, if it’s lost.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Bridget

    Dear Brigit,

    I found this on the main board yesterday. If you need, I can photocopy the article and mail it to you. If so, email me. Tish

      *Bridget, i believe that you're talking about Lois Ericson's article in issue no. 72, pp. 65-69, from 1997, which is filled with wonderful information on using bleach with fabric. Online, i don't see it available as a back issue, but you can call customer service at 800-888-8286 to check, or find it at your local library.

        *I just wanted to share something that helped the bleaching process stop. Apparently bleach keeps breaking down the fibers even after rinsing it out.There is a product for swimming pools called Anti-Clor. It is to neutralize too much chlorine in your pool. I buy it in pool supply stores, but here in Florida there are a lot of those. Maybe there is a source on the web. A small canister only costs about $8 here. I have never figured out how to translate large quantities of water into a washing machine so I just use a tablespoon of the powder.BTW this information came from a dyers e-mail list I subscribed to years ago. Hope this helps anyone.NancyClearwater, FL
