Tatting With A Little Hair Spray

Yes to keep the threads straight !

After blocking with little water overnight I spritzed with Hairspray to help keep tiny threads in place

And It is working.
 The delicate lavender and pink color show up here, the flash kinda steals the color :)

  8. You do such beautiful work! I'd be afraid to use hairspray, though, because I'd worry it could stain the cotton. I use spray starch when I want to give a piece a little more body, and it has a nice scent, too.

  9. I haven't tried the all brands of spray starch but the ones I have tried are to thick and can visibly be seen. This is not first time using hair spray, it has not changed the color and it rinse out.
