I had an oddment of calico from somewhere which had been folded a la Jennie Rayment and it occurred to me that this would be another interesting block for my rusting quilt.
Then I placed some washers and nuts on the surface
And put it into a plastic veg tray with some vinegar and water.
I’m not sure whether it was the unfortunate accident it had, being knocked over, or whether I put it in too deep a layer of acidulated water or what, but the results weren’t quite as crisp as I was hoping.
Apart from the pins.
And they’re actually clearer on the back.
I like the effect of the folding but I’m not quite sure where to take this next, so it’s on hold while I work on another piece of encrusted embroidery and reticulated brass jewellery.
