Tests with discharge paste
Killed the blowdryer, YIKES
Ok so I thought I would try the discharge paste out, PEE UUU very smelly but a good effect. You just paint on the discharge paste , or stamp it on the fabric and let it dry and if your anything like me, Miss Impatient. I then got the blow dryer out. HA HA as it got hotter it lightened the fabric up without even ironing it, but then the blowdryer quit!! Luckily it only just overheated, so its now working and its dry. Results are just below this pic.
I know, I know I dont POST for a while then I overload you. Sorry about that, but have some time to put things on my blog. I had just posted the last work and came back to the computer and had 2 comments already ... yahhooo soo people are out there reading my blog besides my sisters! :)
Sande thank you for the compliments on my book covers and for Charlotte, who wants to know what NOTAN is. Notan is a japanese word meaning dark-light, the principle of light and dark design. It focuses the interaction between positive and negative. See the link and the students work its really fantastic and I have seen it before in some Quilts.
