It's nearly one year I'm trying to find a nice choice of Crayola crayons in Florence. Fulvia bought one huge box, 120 crayons, in the USA, and I succeded to buy only the jumbo ones, they are 12. I made some attempts in coloring stitchery with crayons but I was not happy of them; I don't like how to lay the color and fade them... terrible spots of colors or the color is too light that cannot be even seen. The post from Fulvia says, Lizzie, try again...Yesterday evening, just before going to bed, I got one of my never ending WIP, a little towel with a nice primitive stitchery. I tried again coloring the stitchery with crayons, with my 12 jumbos. What a bungle! After ironed the colored stitchery I layed some more white on the little sheep. According to you, what does a wax crayon behave on a hot piece of fabric? It melts, it melts soooooo easily that after I ironed the stitchery again, the melted wax floaded all over around from the white sheep . I didn't let the towel cool down that I got my spot remover and I washed it. Unfortunately this action was not really the right one: crayons color can be fixed by ironing the fabric, it's true, but the color must be cooled so that it can polymerize. I runned the risk to ruin everything and to loose the colors. Fortunately, colors were still present on the stitchery, they were slightly lighter but they were still there. I can confirm, throughout an experimental test that fabric, which is colored with crayons, after ironing it, can be washed, even with a spot remover!
