It's me, Maura. Marvalina is just my superhero and I like to create with her!

STARCH RESIST PROCESS

Starch Resist refers to the process of blocking off areas on the fabric with a starch paste and then letting it dry.  As it dries, it cracks and you can paint back through to the fabric. I have been using both potato and pea starch in my processes. The beauty of this process is the organic cracks that the starch creates as it dries and the fact that you have very little control over the pattern it creates.
