The fun continues in the Irresistible Dye Class I teach at the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design. This week we explored dying with rust. Its quite a simple process and it achieves some fabulous results.
To start we laid down a large plastic bag and upon this we placed our fabric that had been sprayed with a 50/50 water vinegar solution.
