paste

i use paste a little in my dying to make a resist pattern. a resist is a spot where to dye is prevented from reaching the fabric so it doesnt get dyed.

i used flour and water to make a resist paste to use on skirt design. i also created a stencil which i used to fill in a pattern with the paste.

i let it dry and then did the dying. i would recommend this system to someone who wants to try a resist dye and doesn’t care too much about the exactness of the pattern. it is very easy in terms of steps and cleanups in resist dyes. depending how long it dries and the thickness/spreadibility there will be variation on the strength of the resist.
