OZEDIES Techniques...By Alison Callcott

Here is some samples of uses of the OZEDIES... this is a liqud die that works prefectly with cotton fabric or with paper.

Laces ...Row 1 – white lace
Row 2 – white lace dyed with Regency Rose

Row 3 – white eyelet lace dyed with Turquoise
Row 4 – white eyelet lace
Row 5 – white eyelet lace dyed with Luscious Lime

Row 6 – white circle lace
Row 7 – white circle lace dyed with Edwardian Pearl
Row 8 – white circle lace dyed with Chocolate

Row 9 – white stretch lace
Row 10 – white stretch lace dyed with Pansy
Row 11 – white stretch lace dyed with Chocolate

* All the laces were dyed with 100% full strength dye and left in dye for varying short times to achieve results obtained.

Blue denim swatches ...

This example is used from recycled blue denim (from old pair of jeans)
These swatches are in the first picture above....

Swatch 1 – Edwardian Pearl
Swatch 2 – Regency Rose
Swatch 3 – Fuschia
Swatch 4 – Luscious Lime
Swatch 5 – Pansy
Swatch 6 – Chocolate
Swatch 7 – Turquoise

* All the denim swatches were dyed with 100% full strength dye and left in dye for varying short times to achieve results obtained.

Here is a Card that Alison Callcott has made with some blue denim recycled from an old pair of jeans which she has dyed with Ozecraft Chocolate and Turquoise dyes. Alison has included examples of the original blue denim above the card.

Other products used when making the card are:
  • white cardstock,
  • brown velvet cardstock,
  • Big Shot Circles die,
  • Sizzix Round & Round border die,
  • white eyelets and
  • Kaiser rhinestones.

Again the denim was dyed with 100% full strength dye.

Step 1
Alison found both the Turquoise and Chocolate dyes to be very strong so the blue denim was only in the dyes for a short amount of time.
Step 2
Additionally, to make the most of my dyes, Alison squeezed the denim circles to ensure any excess dyed returned to the container she was using.
Step 3
Alison then laid the denim circles on an old towel so as to not stain any surface and they dried reasonably quickly ... as quickly as any wet fabric would.

When using the Ozecraft dyes Alison primarily used small recycled yoghurt containers to pour the dye into.

Wow, those laces look fab and I didn't even think to use it on denim to get a different look to the denim. Thanks for sharing.
