Sugar Syrup Tutorial and Fabric Giveaway

Just a reminder - today I'm a guest on the And Then We Set It On Fire blog.  I'll be sharing information on using sugar syrup as a resist and I'll be giving away a sample set of resist-dyed fabrics.

Visit the Fire blog to download the tutorial and enter the drawing.


  1. Wonderful resist pieces you show over there...I would love to cover some of my handbound books with it...they would look fabulous!!

  2. Lisa, I finally got around to making my first batch of sugar this morning to prepare for some experimenting. Question: will it get thicker as it cools in the refrigerator? I cooked it (1 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 cup of water) 20 minutes at a low simmer, cooled on the stove then put in a container to refrigerate. It seems very runny to me, even after a couple of hours in the fridge. Should I try to heat it some more?

  3. It will get somewhat thicker. It is pretty runny - not nearly as thick as corn syrup or pancake syrup - more like maple syrup. It should work fine. If it is too thin, what may happen is that the water separates out and creates a halo effect. I actually love the look, but have only achieved it through serendipity.
