Playing with Paintstiks

Today I am posting pictures of a rust dyed scarf that had patterning I felt was weak. Because rust dyeing is so unpredictable that happens frequently. I set those scarves aside to turn them into Rust-Tex Plus Scarves.
This first picture shows the finished Rust-Tex Plus Scarf. You can see I used Shiva paint sticks in gold, silver and copper to decorate it.
In the other two pictures you will see what I used as my "rubbing plates".
Two pieces of pressed glass from the thrift shop.
Pretty cool huh?

Awesome!!! Really added pizzaz.
I like that you found other textures to use than the rubbing plates.

Brilliant use of found objects, Lois! I must have a creative look around my home ... you have inspired me. I love what you have turned that scarf into.
