Here it is — the moment you’ve all been waiting for! The washing out and unveiling of the mold-dyed pieces. The bad news is that the mold weakened the fabric, and it disintegrated. The good news is that it only disintegrated around the edges, and the centers are intact. I think I like them better this way. This is prettier than if they were whole pieces of rectangular canvas. They look like ancient relics, or shrouds.
Here’s the red onion piece:

The edges are intact, too, and I think I can do something with these.
Now I have to figure out what to do next. They’re too fragile to stretch, so they’ll have to be mounted on other fabric or something.
The colors are beautifully subtle, and they look good against both white and black.
