|You will never look at old rusting objects in quite the same way again!|
|When in full "dyeing mode" Maggie will stay outside everyday for hours at a time.|
| Soak the fabric in the white vinegar/water solution. |
Wrap the rusted objects in fabric and cover with plastic for a minimum of 24 hours.
|TIP: Maggie will sometimes incorporate botanical materials and powdered dyes in her work. These eco dyeing projects require boiling for long periods of time - all done in her outdoor space!|
|Have fun with your rusted fabric designs! |
Work with the natural design elements to see what they will become.
|Try Maggie's tip of eco printing in your outdoor space. There are many blogs to learn more about this process.|
