Starch Crackle Results

Susan quilted her small piece using the lines and circles as guides. The circles were imprinted by laying a sink protector into the wet flour paste and removing before the paste dried. Once crackled and painted, the circles become apparent.

Sue Anne used a potato masher to create the multiple grids in her crackled fabric. She then incorporated the "new" fabric into her piece.

Jamie's gridded piece started with the elephant batik as the center. Her black and white crackled fabric is used as accompaniment.

In Jamie's second piece, the crackled fabric is pieced into the daikon radishes to create shadows along the sides of the vegetable.
