This week I had some fun rust dyeing muslin again. This is a fun technique and very easy to do.
I mix water and vinegar, dip the muslin in it then wrap up some old rusty metal items. Then I put it all in a plastic bag, leave it outside overnight. I leave the bag open so some air can get in, it helps with the rusting process. I never know what I'm going to get and that's the best part.
The bottom two photos are of a completed Art Quiltlet I made using some of my rusty cotton. I also used some other fabric I dyed and stamped. The photo transfer is of the back of an old rusty pickup truck. I altered the photo first in a photo program before printing on to cotton.
