Discharge on Procion Dyed Cloth

A further experiment using the tragacanth paste. Here I used a small amount of Chlorine bleach in some tragacanth paste. Initially the paste went quite yellow but then the colour dispersed again. This example was a piece of procion dyed cotton that I thermofax screened quite a complicated desing on - then I had to wait for the discharge to occur. It is quite tricky using discharge because you can't really see where the paste has gone through the screen and you have to hope that you have got an even pass across the screen so the imprint will be good
