Flour Resist

A piece of cotton dyed with procion dyes, onto which I then painted a flour resist. 

I've since added magenta procion dye; and another layer of flour paste resist; and then painted the grey/black procian dye. In class, I used a batik tjanting, and added another black procion dye to the outlined shape. Got to iron off the wax now.

In the conservatory I've begun a tin-can 'rust dye' experiment. I've wrapped linen fabric around a tin can and added pennies. Soaked it through with tap water, and await the results with interest!
