Making Mischief...

I have wonderful next door neighbours. Like me, they collect odd bits and pieces...and both have an eye for art. So when I mentioned rust dyeing, they said, oh, how interesting...and attended the 'unveiling' this morning of a piece of silk that had been wrapped round a gate they bought to use in their garden, but which had a lovely coat of rust... Mike, being a professional photographer, takes a good photo, as you'll see from the series above. Now all I have to do is Make Something With It! Should be quite straightforward... Now, I wonder if I can pinch the gate, what do you think?

It is quote beautiful, but at the risk of being a spoilsport, a number of people have feported serious rot problems with fabric that hss been rustdyed. I have seen fabric thtg fellw artistgs haave purchased tht has been rustg dyed simply fall apart when they attemptede to use it in a work. TGhis has also been reoportede with othr organicc dyeing methodes, but what the hey, the results are worth the risk.
