So I took some muslin and dipped it in the glue/water solution per Rosalita's instructions. It finished with a pleasantly textured result. I also did some cheesecloth and added some paint to the solution -- I'll talk about that in a future post. Then I took some of my precious Godiva tissue paper and did the diluted glue dip. It was kind of boring like that, so I added a couple of pieces of paper towels that I had used for clean up on a previous project.
The whole thing started to remind me of the ground after a hard rainstorm in late fall (except for the color), so I added a few maple pods for a resist.
I sprayed the whole thing with walnut antiquing spray and let it dry in the sun.
Now I have this textured piece of stiffish fabric. I was planning to layer it with batting and a backing of some kind, then stitching all over it. Then maybe some paint? And I was wondering if getting out the burning tool and applying it to the edges might make an interesting finish...
