These rusty bird feeder results aren't as good as my first rust dyeing attempt, but I think the fabric I used here might be a polyester blend. This process works best with 100% cotton or silk, so I will try again today with different fabric. I just searched our basement for rusty things and found some REALLY cool ones that should give me interesting designs. Wish me luck!
In the meantime here is the rest of the process from yesterday's post using the rusty bird feeder. The first two photos show the bird feeder brought indoors and being unwrapped. The fabric looks very rust stained.
