Another Rust Experiment

6th September 2018

I drew a circle using my water soluble marker and made marks evenly around the circle....


....inserted pins...


....more marks and pins added....


....all the pins now inserted...



....placed a square of handmade paper onto the rusting tin...


...placed the pinned fabric on top and sprayed lightly with distilled vinegar/water...


....placed another piece of cotton fabric on top...


....the result after 24 hours and pins removed....


....top fabric...


....rather pleased with the result, ready for hand stitching.

Rusting with a silk strip and large bolt...


....the silk is twisted and wound round the bolt, sprayed with vinegar/water...


.....this is the rather lovely result, reminds me of feathers!



>>>>>>>

I have been given 2 small tables for my living room, they need a makeover!

The strip of fabric on the left is from the edge of my window blind, I have matched my wool fleece/silk to the colours...


....tried a sample using my embellisher for a table topper which will be covered in glass.



Hope it works on a larger scale, my next project, could be a week or two before it is finished!!!
