09 Nov Rust water tutorial
What is rust water (aka iron water), how do you make it and what can you use it for? Are you new to eco printing or interested in working without traditional powdered mordants in a health conscious and environmentally sustainable way? Do you want to learn all about creating your own rust water (rather than working with commercial ferrous sulphate) to help achieve lasting colour and prints when using leaves, seed pods and onion skins to colour your textiles? During this short video I share what rust water is, different ways to make it and one way of using it to transform an old linen tablecloth and old gardening smock using blackberry leaves and rosebay willowherb! There are many other uses for rust water in the eco print and natural dye studio but this is my favourite!
