Stamped Fabric

I remember one of the few things I ever enjoyed about elementary school art was the time we dropped one drop of India ink on a piece of wet coffee filter paper that had been folded into quarters and thoroughly wetted. The black ink ran through the filter paper breaking up into its component colours like light through a prisim.

So this time I wanted to get the black thickened dye to run like the India ink did. I know, 'thickened' should have been a clue. But I gave it a go and thought about that when I was the not-really-running-at-all results. Smudged, yes ... running, no.
