More Slow cloth

More slow cloth!It is growing by the day and I'm experimenting with combinations of dye extracts/mordants and Gum Tragacanth for printing on the white areas.So far Quebracho red and iron liquid have given a striking black, but the print is washing out when I rinse the samples out-probably not waiting long enough for it to set before washing-patience Lyn!
The weather has been scorching and we went to a vide grenier to scout out old French books to alter,with great success.My latest altered book is now finished and my Kimono constructed from damask is progressing, ready for me to create a felt/devore lace version-getting excited about the thought of this.
