Yes, these items can make great fabric to be used in art
quilts or mixed media pieces.
All you need are some pieces of rusted
metal, vinegar, salt, water, and time.
Them you can get some very interesting pieces of fabric.
On the left side of this piece you can see
what happens when you wrap the fabric around chains.
Here you can see rusted washers and some other metal
pieces. The surrounding areas result from “bleeding” of the rusting.
What can you do with this type of fabric?
In the past I dyed it a lovely turquoise and made it
into small neck purses. Unfortunately,
they were given away before being photographed.
The fabric can be used in art quilts and mixed media.
Sometimes you can look at the fabric and see
pictures, like looking at clouds and seeing things.
I love to do surface design and this is a fun idea to work
with. You never know what you are going to get.
THE “EARTH” WITHOUT ART IS JUST “EH”.
