My teenage grandson was over yesterday and I showed him how I rust cloth. He isn't into art, but he does like to see processes. I sprayed cotton muslin with a solution of vinegar and water (50/50). Then I sprayed a bunch o' rusty things and wrapped them up in the cloth. I covered them loosely with plastic and let them sit in the back yard overnight. I really like how it turned out.
Wabi-Sabi. Might be inspiration for a painting!
I'll bring some of this cloth to my upcoming classes at Art and Soul Retreat, Va Beach! Another instructor, Erin Keck made this lovely collage of the classes I'll be teaching!
