A opportunity to play with smelly substances! Home alone. We all know the story - you buy the ingredients for a particular technique, they sit in a cupboard, but one day you just have to get them out and have a go.
The time had come to make up discharge paste, using Formusol, mixed with thickened print paste. The opportunity, the July Quilt Journal.

Notes made, samples kept - now to clear up the mess.
