Watching vinegar evaporate


Nothing at all happened to the brass finding; it must have had some protective coating or oil on it that I didn't notice. I'll probably scour it and try again.

The fabric with bronzing powders worked a treat, though. The "gold" paint reacted only slightly, around the edges, but the "copper" paint took on so much patina that the painted streak almost disappears into the green background. (Duhh, maybe next time paint a piece of white or black fabric so you can really see what's happening.)

  1. That is pretty cool Margaret. I could see a lot of potential in this! Do you think it is stable on the fabric, like for a long time? Glad you've started a blog, and that you're back on Mavs too.
