Nos. 35 and 37 -- Decolourant
While cleaning up a mess of fabric, I found some pieces that I had dyed years ago - pieces just waiting for a bit of discharge. I used Decolourant gel on four pieces of dyed fabric. Only two were somewhat successful.
I used a bamboo stencil on the bottom and several texture 'stencils' on the top.
This has some promise for a small quilt.
This fabric began with a red and dark green surface. The Decolourant removed quite a bit of color, taking it down to the soft green shown here.
Hope you have had a lovely Thanksgiving and starting a relaxing weekend.
