Discharge on Hand Dyed Fabric

I used a plastic mandala stencil with paste discharge on a small sponge - I got the discharge from Dharma Trading (the kind you let dry, then iron). I should have used a lighter hand with it, because the fabric got soaked and lost detail. The paste is very wet. Lesson learned! The second sample is discharge sprayed through lace, using a light hand. I'm not trying for perfection here, just a soft, subtle texture. This one I really loved, and I'll use the fabric in my pillow project. More on that soon.:)
