HI.  I was just wondering if anyone have ever heard of a fabric dyeing technique that includes using shaving cream & powdered rit dye???  If so, may I have instructions??

Thanks!  Smiley

You might be a quilter if:
you smuggle your fabric stash in with grocery bags to fool your husband into thinking the grocery budget is going for food.

YUP!!  That's me!!!

Here are some instructions for Shaving cream marbling.

However, you can not use RIT dye for this method, as RIT requires heat. You'll need to use a fibre reactive dye, which is better for the cotton used in quilting anyway.

Thanks for the info on dyeing using shaving cream.   I also found this website that discussed this technique: http://boards.hgtv.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/5894011632/m/3411060342/r/4191071342
