Flour Resist

I've been playing around with different methods of past resists. I've tried corn and potato dextrin as well as other pastes and thickened agents. I've used fabric pretreated with soda ash and dyes thickened with sodium alginate. There are so many different ways of getting colour onto fabric.

Then I read Jane Dunnewold's article in issue 31 of the Quilting Arts magazine. It's so easy! Flour and water and paints. It couldn't be simpler.

Here's a quick result and I've got some more on the go. I'll keep you posted.
