Copper or iron
When working with fabrics, purple is used to transfer colors to fabric. If you are going to apply leaves and flowers, it is essential to use purple. However, mordant is not needed to transfer the paints and patterns of materials such as copper and iron to the fabric because they oxidize and rust and transfer their colors directly to the fabric as soon as they come into contact with water.
ApplicationTo paint, leave the fabric wrapped with rope in rusty water in a closed jar or bucket. After the fabric has absorbed enough paint, open it and dry it. Then place the flowers and leaves you want to transfer colors and patterns on the fabric according to your taste. Then wrap the fabric tightly around a wooden stick and boil it for about an hour. After the boiling is finished, put it in a bag and let it sit in the bag for at least a week.
Then, slowly open the fabric and wash it with a pH-neutral (pH 7) soap. The pH value of the soap is very important at this point, because other soaps you will use may cause distortion of colors and patterns. And your design prepared with your own hands is now ready to use 🙂
