|Here are the fruits of my labor - lots of hammering and stamping with fabric paint.|
|I started with a piece of fabric that I had stamped earlier with thickened dyes. |
My tools are in order so let the pounding begin!
|This is what's left of my pounded fern.|
|I wanted to try stamping the sticks and stones to see what would happen. The stick was predictable but I wondered what would happen if I mixed beach sand with the paint.|
|Holding the stone in my hand I pressed and rolled the stone onto the fabric. Once the sandy paint dried it had an interesting and thick texture.|
|Have you tried pounding natural materials to create a design? Please share!|
