Rust Dyed Fabric

The experiment of rust dye-ing fabric!
This is still rusting, and colouring, as I write. I expect it will take a long time to complete.
It's in the conservatory, and as we've had a lot of got sunny days recently, the fabric has often dried out by the time I've got home. I'm keeping it wet though; and I look forward to seeing the results.
I'm going to use this idea as a session in one of the groups I work with, and see how they work with it. It's a long-term dye-ing process, and not one of instant results, like with the procion dyes on my course.  


  1. the promise of surprising results is what makes these kinds of dyes so much fun!
