The jar. Iron water. Steel wool bits and an old nail, vinegar and water. About 2 weeks.
Now strained. More water added to dilute. Iron can damage fibers.
Brushed on to the pomegranate/walnut dipped thread stretch on an old shuttle.
The water reacts to the tannin. Darkens slowly. Permanent.
Variegated thread. Washed and dried. This is not the first time I have painted it on thread. But the thread stretched, yes.
And not on fabric. Maybe you remember this one.
But the stretched idea... after I get the loom warped up. I will try it as a form of warp painting. Maybe I should get that Considering Weave class up and open as well?
Listed on the ONLINE CLASSES page and also on it's own page over at FEEL FREE.
Because I've decided that will encourage me to add to it.
I will be back on Monday with some patchwork.
