Ooooohhh!!.....???

I bet you're thinking....ooooh! She's been rust dyeing again...how pretty!!! You know I love to rust dye. I love the uncontrolled, serendipitous results...I love how adding tannin to the mix makes color changes happen...




BUT NOPE!
I'm not rust dyeing....



EEEEEWWWWW!!!!!


This is what happens when water fountains go bad...and no one knows...and it's summertime...and really, really hot. I got to measure this 3,000 sf space to draw up plans for a total gutting and renovation. Thank goodness for the laser tape!! And you thought interior design was all glamour! Heehee! Not this time.

But you know, if you get past the ICK factor and look at it really up close, it is fascinating....and pretty. I would love for my rust dyed fabrics to look like this. Just, not with all the ICK!!

Oooooo, but it is so pretty. You can print your photos of it on fabric and pretend it's rust dyed.

That's what I plan to do :)

And I'm glad someone else thinks it's pretty!

Wow! That mold sure does make a beautiful design.

It is pretty. At first I DID think you were up to something fun.

Love the photo of you in your haz mat gear!

The designs within the ICK are fascinating....can't wait to see what you do with them:)

Thanks for the birthday wishes and be very safe!

My basement flooded badly from storms and didn't look that bad, but I ended up in the hospital with respiratory problems that a year later I am finally getting over and back in my house. Make sure you keep yourself covered up.
