Painted rubbings . . .

. . . from the Silk Museum, not sure its improved them! I just like brighter colours. Blame it on the nasturtiums.

This fourth piece is perhaps the most interesting - When I'm painting a piece of fabric I usually put either a bit of paper or fabric under it, to catch the colour that soaks through. Its also worth using a paint rag too to mop up spills, blot print blocks and wipe brushes. My current rag isn't 'finished' yet, needs a bit more mess to deal with before revealing to the public.
