in the October/November 2013 issue of Quilting Arts there was an article about rust printing using print paste and iron powder and a thermofax screen. well, as much as i like rusted fabric, i had to try it. but i didn’t have very good results.
not one to be deterred, i decided to try it again using a stencil and had much better results. i don’t think the stencil had a major bearing on it. but i did make my print paste a little thicker than before and i covered the print with plastic while to rust action occurred.
i had previously rust dyed this fabric, but there was still a lot of white areas, so i thought it would be a good canidate for the rust printing.
still has a few issues but there is a lot of possibility with this.
