I set up a table outside so I could work with bleaching products to make discharged patterns on dark brown and black fabrics.
I have pails ready with anti-chlor solution and plain water for rinsing. (And Inspector Suki is standing ready in case her help is required.....)
This is the first time I've worked with the dark brown fabric, and I tried various applications of SoftScrub, bleach, and bleach pens.
Leaving the bleach on the fabric for different amounts of time creates color variations.
This pattern on black fabric came from spraying bleach on a metal trivet.
The bushes are handy places to drape the rinsed fabrics.
Inspector Suki was kept busy stalking a chipmunk in the bushes.
