I realised, when I saw the picture I'd taken of my workbench, that I hadn't told you about this sample.
It was made by randomly applying transfer paints to paper, letting it dry, cutting the paper into strips, arranging the strips paint side down on some fabric and ironing the whole lot under baking parchment in the usual way.
What I hadn't realised until I peeled the strips back was that somewhere in the process some threads had come loose and taken up some of the paint, resulting in this 'happy accident'. If I'd actually set out to achieve those delicate meandering lines I'd never have managed it.
