Color Magnet on silk?

I read online about this product by Jacquard and got excited about the possibilities it opens up. You can apply it to fabric anyway you want -then dye- and wherever the Color Magnet was applied attracts more dye. So it creates two tones of the same color.

Yesterday, I drizzled and stamped it  (with wild abandon!) onto a few yards of white silk charmeuse. The stuff is the consistency of honey and doesn’t smell (yay). The yardage is now on my porch drying.

In an hour or so I’ll be dyeing it with acid dyes. Stay tuned for the results!
