Here they are, in all their rusty glory! I'm happy with the piece shown below, but the larger piece (shown above) is in need of another dose of rust.
The nicer piece was done around the steel wool-wrapped cardboard tube. The vinegar made the steel wool rust amazingly well (and fast). I need to wash the fabric yet to see how much of the colour fades, but hopefully not too much.
The larger piece was the one I wrapped around a rusty piece of metal pole and the colours came out much more faded and also in a striped pattern. This one is going back to the drawing board and will be rewrapped the other way on. Hmmm...maybe I'll end up with a plaid effect? Of course I ran out of vinegar and need to get more before I can proceed.
Tomorrow I hope to show you pictures of the shibori I did over the weekend. Stay tuned!
