Yesterday, Mandi came to play for the day. She doesn’t usually work in black so discharging was mostly new for her.
We had thick and thin bleach, Jacquard Discharge paste and thick and thin formosul. The thin bleach was very cheap bleach – I think mostly water as the results were not good. Lesson – don’t buy cheap bleach for discharging fabric!! Mandi was good and sampled all five with a number of different fabrics – I just played with some larger pieces and credit carded one in formosul and one in thick bleach, both on linen. Here are the results with some small cut offs:
Hopefully, Mandi will blog her samples – here is her address – www.mandijbainbridge.blogspot.com
Now for some sewing!
