speaking of rust...

I've been rusting cloth and paper for the past couple of days; coincidentally, because there has been a discussion today about it on QuiltArt. Using a secret old world recipe, here are the results. The thing about secret old world recipes is that they are not written down and they are never the same twice. But that's what makes them interesting. The fabric above and the papers below were all boring white before their beauty treatments. Which one do you like the best??

Hi Rayna!

I'm taking Laura C-W's Masterclass and am trying to use the blog to capture my ideas as well as some of the work. Thanks for visiting :-)

As far as the rust fabric goes, I like #2 and #3. I know I'm only looking at a tiny image, but #2 looks like a lady in a long flowing gown. I love the composition in #3.

I can't wait to see what they turn into!
