I let the paint set for 24 hours, then gave it a good rinse to get rid of the flour paste, and then washed it in the washing machine. almost like it better before rinsing off the flour paste, but I'm pleased with the outcome.
I debated giving the strips another coat of resist and another paint job, but decided to leave these.
Today I worked on two more pieces using a thinner coat of resist. Not sure how they will turn out, but I think I'll try putting them through the process again, just for comparison.
Below are some of the cabbage leaves that I showed you the other day, now wrapped in silk around the coffee can. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the prints will work. The bundle is silk wrapped around the cabbage stalk. Will I be able to refrain from unwrapping for a month?
See how sheer the silk is? You can see the
leaves right through it.
Finished bailing out the fountain for its spring clean up this afternoon. Lots of leaves soaking in there from the recent thunder storms, and some gravel and stones that Bryce Eleanor added on various occasions.
Glad that job is done!
