Fabric stamping with deColourant Plus

I bought several bottles of deColourant Plus about a year ago, thinking that it was fabric paint. Which, upon use, is what it actually is. I cannot see that there is much removal of the original fabric colour, although maybe that shows up with subsequent washing. I have heard that this product works really well on hand dyed fabric, so I will try that tomorrow.
