Paste Resist Workshop - LO1

November 9, 2017

In the workshop today I tried the technique of paste resist and devorè.  We used devorèable fabric and procion and pigment binder.  Some people experimented with cross dying their fabric first for this technique.  I decided to use the white fabric as my background colour and the shapes I put on top to be the colour.  I chose to use pigment binder to create the resist in this process.  Using a screen I already had I printed using this and a lovely bright pink.  Once this was dried and heat pressed I used a open screen and devorèd the whole fabric.  I was hoping this would leave the fabric that didn't have the binder on to be eaten away.  And this is the result I achieved.  I really like this technique and I think this is one that I will be using more in the project.  The binder looks effective but I will try this next with the procion dyes as the binder sits on top of the fabric and this doesn't create a nice drape to the fabric.  I hope to be able to use this technique with my shapes on a larger scale than what I got to use in the workshop.  Below is a sample I created using this technique.
