This is the best of my attempts to transfer some dim pictures of India to hand-dye. I think we can conclude there was too little colour in the images and too much in the cloth – and possibly too little acrylic gel between the two, and too much paper left on the back.
However, there is a fair amount of other
crud stuff destined to go over the top – like this lot of stamped papers.
I was quite surprised by how many Indian stamps I've got. And how much pink paper.
I rolled some gold paint on the back of the fabric, with a lace covered roller.
Now that I like.
I have finished another pair of more red pages – which I'm also underwhelmed by. The threads on the ‘flowers’ seem too assertive, especially on the back, while those on the glitzy diamonds aren’t assertive enough.
I think we can conclude that the last couple of days have been learning experiences.
