Discharge Paste Experiments

Discharge PasteDischarge Paste

Here are my first experiments with household chemicals as a discharge paste.  On my first piece I thought it hadn’t worked, so went out and left it on the fabric – on my return it had certainly removed the colour but had also started to eat into the material!

These samples are scrunch dyed using Indigo and then printed with leaves, coated with the ‘discharge paste’.  I am very pleased with these initial results and keen to move onto to larger pieces of fabric and preloved clothing – whoo hoo!
