Vintage and newer crocheted lace pieces cut to about 15” long.
Pour a good amount of fabric stiffener into a wide cup and place the lace pieces inside. Wearing gloves, work the fabric stiffener into the lace until they are completely saturated. Spread the lace pieces out onto washable mats or wax paper and allow to dry.
While the lace is still very wet, flip the pieces every now and then and make sure that the liquid does not form “windows” in the lace holes.
Dry overnight then paint with acrylic or spray paint
