Flour Paste Resist.....Part 3

Flour Paste Resist.....Results:

Click Image to Enlarge:

Fabric 1
Sun Dyed Fabric

The uncooked flour paste creates fine cracks

When applying the paint, be sure to check on the back of the fabric to make sure your paint is getting down into the cracks.

Salt was used when this fabric was painted and sun dyed.
The texture from the salt looks great with the cracked lines of paint on top.

Fabric 2
Rust Dyed Fabric

I painted with dark and light paints over the flour paste

All paint colors show up equally well

Yes, I am pleased with the results.
Yes, I plan to try this technique again.

We delivered Hay to a neighbor today...

After a taste test...

The horses gave the okay to unload it into the barn

Great Fabrics and Beautiful Weather....
It was a perfect day~

The pink fabric isn't even mine.....
It belongs to my friend.
We are part of a Surface Design Round Robin.
We each created a piece of fabric with 1 surface design on it.
Then passed it on to the next person, who will do a second technique, then pass it on and so on.
There are 4 of us in the group.
We are challenging ourselves to try out new techniques.
It will be fun when we get our original piece back!
