Hand-Dyed Trim

I came across this just now and thought it looked interesting.

Basically, you water down acrylic paint, use it to thoroughly tint your trim (such as lace), let it dry, then "set" the paint in the dryer (on high). I wouldn't have thought it'd be washer safe-- or permanent-- but supposedly it is. (I guess it makes sense that it would be, considering that spills of acrylic paint dried on clothing are usually there to stay.) Could be a fun way to get just the right shade of lace. . .
