Flour Resist Paste a new journey.

Greetings All,
Yesterday I decide to try four paste resist for the 1st time on a piece of cotton that I had dyed a while back that I didn't like.  This is the results after dying for 24 hours and the next step is to apply fabric paint.  Here is my piece before paint.

Here is a link to the video that I used and the overall inspiration came from time spent with fiber artist Angie Knowles of Art Quilt Textiles.

Greetings All,
Here is another piece from the "Hand Works" studio.  This piece is titled "Seekers" and it's constructed of my hand dyed vintage damask linen.  It was also screen printed and machine quilted.  Love the etherial affect of the three figures of fiberglass screen.  It will make it debut at the 20th Cultural Connection.
