I've been rusting fabric (and selling it as DellaJane IronWorks ) for a while. I've been experimenting on ways to get even deposits and even color. This week, I went for almost the opposite - stripes!
My latest rusting adventure started when Vicki J from my local quilt guild called and asked if I was still interested in "borrowing" some rust. Quite a while back, I had asked about rusting fabric on a couple of VERY rusty old cars, but her DH said a very firm NO! He and his son had towed an old pickup home and it was slated for a truck demolition derby. Vicki thought I could take advantage of the rusted hood.
This is what my fabric looked like on the hood.
One piece opened up. Isn't it beautiful?
I'd STILL like to get my fabric on those Model A's!!
