1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: I'm sorry this isn't really crafty but....that color pulse stuff on: February 20, 2008 06:18:48 PM
Color Pulse isn't really designed to completely dye hair, but like the box says, to make your natural hair color "pulse".  The color recommendations are there for a reason.

I've used it four times; three of those times were successful.  It does wash out well (I have brownish-goldish hair) and didn't stain at all.  I wouldn't recommend using it for a drastic change (blonde to black, for example), but for subtle change, it works.

thanks Smiley

oh, i know.  i've been doing stencilling for a looooong time.  i thought a sort of abstract bill murray would add to the geek-factor.  and if i get tired of him, i can lie and say its someone else.

So I tried this.  It didn't get rid of any blackheads (that I noticed) but it did make my nose amazingly smooth.  Maybe tomorrow I'll do my entire face.

I really enjoyed scrunching my nose up and pretending I was made of plastic.  I ran around the house, arms outstretched like a zombie, yelling "I'M NOT REALLLLLL!"

How did you apply the paint?  Dabbing a sponge covers better than pulling it, so if you didn't dab, that could have been the problem.  Tulip normally covers great.  I used yellow velveteen on a black shirt and it was completely covered in about 1.5 coats.

Eh.  I already threw out the receipt.  Stupid JoAnn's was almost completely out of matte in any color, so I had to resort to velveteen.

How many coats did you end up doing?  I have a hoodie that's practically begging to be painted, but I don't want it to end up cracking and peeling after washing it.

I did a shirt the other day using velveteen that seemed to turn out alright, and luckily I didn't heat-set it.  Hoping it doesn't velvetize in the dryer!

I'd get actual fabric paint, like Tulip.  Rarely gets crunchy.
