2 oz. size. A toned down version of the Blue Chalk, the Barely Blue Pounce Powder can be used to mark on white or other very light coloured fabric.
Generally we prefer not to use coloured chalk or powder and we absolutely say that you MUST test before you use it on your quilt. We actually only use it ourselves for TRAINING.
If you do want to use it, the Barely Blue is a great option and the question you may ask is "Why not just use blue?"
The manufacturer found that Quilters liked having the option that was visible but not too overpowering . The regular Blue Chalk is formulated to be ideal for marking fabric with busy prints because it shows up well on lights as well as darks and every colour in between. The manufacturer decided to offer this unique option because they found customers were buying blue chalk from them along with a white and they were mixing their own blend! They wanted to save them the trouble and also offer them something better.
The Barely Blue is a mix of blue pigment (very little) and the Ultimate Pounce Powder. That means it will stay on the fabric nicely and will not bounce off as you sew. It does not iron off, it easily washes off and quite often brushing often is sufficient. It's a much lighter powder which is why 2 oz. is the same price as 4 oz. of the other coloured chalk. They are filled by volume, not weight. The quantity sold with the Pounce Pad or in a refill bag still will transfer stencils for well over 30 hours – that translates into a lot of quilts marked for the money!
