Rusty Hands



The rust play continues. I've obtained some henna stencils, which are wonderful to use because they have slightly adhesive qualities. Yesterday I used reactive iron paint on the fabrics I previously dyed with ferrous sulphate, including the overdyed indigo cotton and this morning I applied rust activator.

The results are somewhat camera-shy, but effective, and I'm very pleased with these experiments.

WOW these are gorgeous! I'm still unwilling to use the chemicals, but love those stencil effects and am thinking of ways to do it with the "old fashioned" process :}
