Rusty Washer Fabric

The rust results are in. I carefully rinsed out the fabric, being careful not to get any washers down the drain. When wet the colors are very rich, we'll see how they look when dry. I am very pleased with the results, where the washers sat on the fabric there are definite circles, and the rust bled out to color the rest of the fabric too.
I think the circles look a lot like leopard spots. This will be fun to play with, I'm thinking, I'm thinking.....

Landreth in our Fyber Cafe group, suggested several rinses in a heavy salt solution, to counteract the vinegar and neutralize it. So I gave it a good soak in salt water, I can still smell the vinegar, so I think I'll soak again.
