More trials

I did more trials this past week, collected below:

Some are pretty awful (like the large piece done with deconstructed screen printing in top left); others are better.

stamps with Cleanline resist on gray cloth

Thiox discharge on gray cloth
Using stones themselves as a resist, suggested to me by Beth Berman.  I love the results, but not sure they're right for this particular piece.

Flour paste resist on white cloth with black thickened dye 
Stitching trials (done a while back in a workshop with Dorothy Caldwell
After all these trials, maybe I'll go back to stitching.  Still thinking. . .
