ReFocusing a Lac Blanket that didnt have good Prints

This was a cotton blanket dyed by putting in Lac in the microwave for 4 minutes. I then used it to try eco printing in the microwave instead of steaming but the results were disappointing - maybe I didn't microwave long enough - but the prints were very pale and uninteresting. The lovely shade of the Lac was there though so, rather than waste this fabric, I thermosfaxed screen printed it using white fabric paint and one of Jane Dunnewold's thermofax screens. It is quite a pretty, delicate little piece now that could be used in other textile adventures
