Rusting Fabric

A previous blog showed my first attempt at using rust on fabric. While looking through my stuff for something else, I found the results of my rust attempt.

You can't tell from the photos, but because I put so much tension on the fabric in take advantage of the serated edges of the beer bottle caps, I managed to cut through the fabric in almost every rust circle. Note to self for next time.

And I started out with unbleached muslin so what rusting results I did get in the circles and the background areas were lost a bit. White fabric would have shown up the rust more. Another note to self.

Just for comparison, here are the results that Cynthia St Charles gets.
