New Discharge Work

A friend has given me a very inexpensive piece of Indian silk. In fact I wasn't even sure that it was silk, but a quick test with discharge paste showed me that the colour would come out. I painted some paste on in floral design and was pleasantly surprised that the teal colour discharged to a lovely turquoise colour. It think it will be made into some interesting scarves!

Flowers just brighten up everything no matter where they show up! Very nice effect.
