PS from Last Post

The curved rusted object in the last post was too large to lay flat, and it didn't make enough contact with the fabric to dye it. So I wrapped it with a strip of water/vinegar soaked white muslin, tied it tightly with string, put it in a plastic bag overnight, and look what happened!

PS...Gene asked if the lines are from a design on the fabric. The fabric was plain white muslin, so no, the lines are not from fabric design. They resulted in the rust-dyeing process, the thinnest lines being from the string I used to tightly tie the fabric to the curved rusty object.

Am I right in thinking that the lighter lines are from the design that was on the fabric?
