    marking chalk?

    This weekend in Dallas I watched a demo on using the Hancy POUNCE pad! Now, I have used Miracle chalk for years and love it, but it is only in white. The Hancy pounce comes in blue and now even LIGHT blue! I feel the two products are very similar, but would like to hear from those who perhaps use both or use the Hancy blue products!

    PS..I just LOVE those Hancy stencils as well! I don't think I bought nearly enough of them!

    both the Hancy white pounce and the Miracle chalk pounce are easy to use and come off with an iron! The blue pounce powder has to be washed out!

    I think it is THE pounce..which by the way, pounce is just a name..you actually SLIDE the pad across your stencil!

    Not a fan of the blue pounce , if you iron at all while the blue is on the fabric , it may never come out... Just a heads up . I found out the hard way. Now I am much more careful.
    Love the stencils , and have had good luck with them. I found both "chalks" to have less "stay power" with starched fabrics. Note you do have to prime them , by pouncing several times to work the chalk into the pad.

    the directions say that the blue can NOT be ironed, it has to be washed out! Everyone was asking the demo lady that same question over and over...she said that is their #1 question when people call asking why they can't get the blue out of their white fabric! She said, if you iron it, instead of washing it, then you have to soak it in vinegar over night and then wash and that should remove it all!
