The ongoin development of Background Fabric

One of the things I learnt at Jane Dunnewold's 2017 Complex Cloth course in Christchurch was not to be afraid to ad another layer if the effect you want is not correct. The flour resist fabric with the red undertones did not have enough light for my intended "Separation of Rangi and Papa panel. Here I have added a layer in white using a thermofax stencil but the images are too distinct for the effect of light breaking into the darkness so i will add another layer in black to see if I can knock back the effect. It is getting some interesting movements so even if i do decide not to use this fabric in its original purpose it will be a useful addition to something else.
