I have a small group of friends/quilters who get together to play with new techniques. the most recent is Decolourant ... it works similarly to bleach to remove colour from fabric.
|We used stencils and stamps. The skill in getting a sharp line is to hold the stencil down!|
|What remained ranged from white to a yellow tone.|
|The de-colourant did not work on this fabric, instead I used a bleach pen by Clorox.|
|This stencil was detailed, but worked very well.|
|The stamp was carved from an eraser. |
The colour left was a lime green.
|Teapot on black. A regular paint brush didn't work as well as a stencil sponge.|
|Batiks worked best.|
|With practice, you can get a clean image. |
Another method that gave a good edge was by preparing a stencil from waxed butcher paper and ironing it to the fabric..
