Flour Resist Fabric continued - Puzzle Number 300!
This is my first piece of flour paste resist fabric I started yesterday. I used a relatively thick layer of flour paste and a relatively thin layer of paint. The paint was all purple. I am quite pleased with the resulting fabric. I may or may not add additional layers to this.
To see the patterning better you can click on either one of these images.
This piece of fabric is a full half yard so I folded it up so you can see some of the patterning. I used a variety of paint colors and got differing results depending on the color I used.
I feel like I used too thin a layer of flour paste and too thick a layer of paint on this one. It was extremely hard to rinse out.
It definitely needs more to make it a satisfactory piece. I do have some ideas.
I learned from these two pieces and that gave me the guidance to do 5 more pieces today. They are being soaked and rinsed right now. I tried different things on them and used different types of fabrics.
I also have used up almost all my white flour so that will be it for now. I may try to use some of my rye flour and see if it gives satisfactory results.
With the posting of this puzzle I have now given you 300 different puzzles to do on my blog.
