This morning I went back into the silk from yesterday.
This is soy wax and discharge paste after I had steam-ironed it. Interesting, huh? However, after a while, even with the window open and two fans going, I had had it with the smell of discharge paste. So I put the silk away and will steam it in a pot tonight or later this afternoon.
This piece needs so much work to make it into anything attractive that I'm not sure it is worth the effort. That will not prevent me from trying, however. I have a piece of white silk I may work with after I finish my lunchtime coffee. Or not.
