Coloring Lacy’s Stiff Stuff™!

What is Lacy’s Stiff Stuff™? It may not look like much, but it’s a great beading foundation that can be used for bead embroidery, cabochon beading and more. It is flexible yet strong and is easy to pierce with a beading needle. There’s no need for an embroidery hoop to work with it. It’s easy to cut with scissors, or you can cut out shapes with sharp punches. Think of the gorgeous bib necklaces you see in fashion magazines. Now you can create your own fabulous beaded necklaces using this product!

Lacy’s Stiff Stuff™ can be dyed to match your bead colors using Rit® Dye. It is easy to do and gives you a nice color all the way through the foundation (the directions are on the Lacy’s Stiff Stuff™ package). I dyed a little piece this beautiful purple color, and it turned out great! It holds its shape even when wet and doesn’t shrink. You can also use permanent markers on Lacy’s Stiff Stuff, which enables you to change colors as needed to follow a pattern. I also tested some of our stamps with StazOn® Ink and found that they work well. That opens up even more design ideas!

Happy Beading! Cody
