Lately, I have been experimenting with different types of resists with varying results:
I also decided to try my hand at using a flour resist. I saw this technique on the Quilting Arts dvd that a friend has lent me and it looked pretty cool.
Mix equal parts flour and water to make a smooth paste.
Stretch fabric on a board and secure with clips.
Add paste to fabric and smooth out with a spatula or knife.
Make marks in the paste with the end of a bamboo skewer and let dry.
Once it is dry I will paint it with fabric paints then remove the resist by soaking in warm water.
I will post more when the results are in.....now to study for my Mandarin exam next week!
