Last but not least Discharge paste.
I'm sure many of you have either heard of discharge paste or used it. I know it was featured on this blog before but I think it has been a while. Well, on this last post of the year I thought I would get a bit smarty pants and combine two techniques in one. This fabric has color magnet and discharge paste on it. First I dyed the fabric on which I had screened Color Magnet then put it in a baggy with dye and soda ash.
When after washing, drying and ironing, I turned the fabric face down on my ironing board table and screened on discharge paste . Now that fabric didn't know whether the color was coming or going (bad art humor)
I used this circle screen with a credit card to apply the discharge paste.
Ironing to remove color
Now look at the other side with color magnet feathers and discharged circles coming through the back. VERY nice!!
I hope you saw a few techniques to whet your whistle. We have a long winter to get through so try some of these techniques. Happy New Year to you all.
