I can't Resist Amy's Clay Paste Work!

Amy Grief has really gotten the technique of using clay paste rest on cotton down pat.  She is attempting to create her own cotton fabric dyed with indigo to use for other projects.  She has gotten the technique of working wet on wet down pretty well.  She has also experiment with new ways of creating texture designs. the first 7 photos are crumpled cotton fabric that was then tied into a ball inside of various types of plastic net bags like garlic tubes, onion bags and flat net fabric.  These created some lovely surface textures as the detail shots of the strips will show.

Amy used clay paste resist with tencils to create thie fabric designs. The bottom two are the same stencil but used on the front and the rear of the same fabric.

Amy is learning to create quite clear designs on her fabrics.
