The Minute (Rice) Waltz
I showed some fabrics I painted on my blog with Seta-Color paints. I mentioned my granddaughter painted with me that day. Some of you expressed a desire to see her fabrics.
This is one piece she did. To get the texture she sprinkled the fabric with kosher salt and Minute Rice. I think she used almost a whole box of rice on her pieces.
I love the texture she achieved.
This used the remainder of the large box of Minute Rice. She also used the kosher salt and two leaves on it. Another very interesting texture.
This looks almost like a marbled fabric. I believe she crinkled this up a little to get the light and darker areas. This is actually the wrong side of the fabric but is much more effective than the right side.
I think her fabrics are more interesting than the ones I created. Children are much less inhibited when creating than adults are.
I apologize for neglecting to post puzzles recently but I do have one for you today.
