Fabric Dyeing

Our next postcard swap is of the theme "stamps".
Could be postage stamps, rubber stamping etc
 I wet a piece of fabric and mixed a variety of Setacolor paints.
Scrunched it up and sprinkled salt over the piece.
Set it aside in the sun to dry.

 After drying this is what eventuated.
Set it with the iron.

 The dots are where the salt sucked up the moisture in the fabric.

Using my postcard size 6" x 4" cutout, 
moved it over the fabric to give me an idea of what background I can use.
Next stage is to decided what sort of stamps I will use.
