Today's experiment is a dud. Still playing around with the Decolourant color remover, I painted some of it onto a carved wooden printing block I have, then stamped it onto my fabric. Here's the block.
Now, the way Decolourant works, is that the bleaching process is activated by heat, so I use my heat gun on it. Usually you can see as the product dries to a white powdery stuff, and under it you can see the fabric becoming lighter and lighter. With mine, today I saw it turning darker under the dried product. That's odd.
Then I washed the Decolourant out and most of the image completely washed away, leaving just a bit of the dark parts.
I added a little watercolor pencil to see if I could make it a little more interesting, but it didn't help in the least. Oh well.
My niece was here for a short visit and we went to the Portland Art Museum, so she could see the Paul Allen Collection exhibit. This was my third viewing of this exhibit, but I enjoyed it just as much as the first and second. There was cute photo booth there where you could inhabit the setting of a painting called "Brother and Sister" by Portland artist, Katherine Ace. So now we have a souvenir of the day.
You can see the real painting here.
