I just painted or stamped the pigmented discharge paste onto the fabric and I had to wait till today for the paste to dry as it was quite thick.
The top piece of fabric is the black silk which discharged to white on day 3. The purple with a shocking pink circle is purple velour discharged with paste mixed with fluorescent pink pigment.
We also discovered today that this brand of discharge paste is no good 48 hours after it is mixed up. I showed some students how to use it and raved about how good it was and then it didn't work I'll mix them some more tomorrow or next Tuesday.
The results of a dye evening with the Venturers (older scouts) are also becoming available as people wash out their fabrics. The Venturers wanted to make real hippy tie dye spirals and circles. Here is my demonstration spiral to show the kids how to do it.
Here is the back of my son's shirt which he liked so much that he put on while it is still slightly damp! The rest of the Venturers will (hopefully) remember to bring in the results of their tie dye session on Monday next week.
