While we were down in Dwellingup I tried to do some rust dyeing. There are heaps of rusty objects scattered about the grounds.

However, since we were only there for two days the rust didn't co-operate and I brought my fabrics home. Then I bundled them up with some nails and washers and an old gear, and got some good results in a few days.

This is the old nightdress that my friend Jennifer gave me. The fabric and lace was so badly torn and damaged that it was beyond repair. I think it looks good with some more damage in the form of rust and I now have to think of a way to incorporate it in a piece of textile art.
