Here are a few pics of the black fabric I discharged.
When I did the soy wax resist printing in the autumn, I used some to make an interfacing stencil from the instructions in Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan’s book. For this one, I just dribbed the soy wax on from a tjanting tool. I didn’t get round to doing any printing with dyes from them so I used this one with the discharge paste. I really like the effect. Not sure where this fabric is going next (what’s new?) but it makes some great marks, doesn’t it?
For the next two, I had taken photos, the first of the sun shining on the river and the new bridge in Newport, and I decided to try transferring what was in my mind on to the fabric. I made a rough sketch and then just played about with masking tape and a few stencils and this was the result:
The other photo was of street lamps shining on a night time street, so I did the same sort of thing. This is a detail of it:
This is the whole thing; not sure where it’s going next…
