A Story of Metamorphosis - in which we learn that a Manky Rag can be a Thing of Beauty ...

Hi Bloggy Friends,

Some of you may remember that in a recent WOYWW post I mentioned that essential piece of arty farty equipment, the Manky Rag - I talked about how it has taken months to achieve the perfect degree of Mankiness. Here's a close-up reminder of said Rag, which started its life as a piece of cheap white jelly muslin about six months ago ...


Sadly, this state of perfection did not last forever, and eventually the time came when it started to get really grotty and even slightly stiff, But this was not the end for Manky Rag - Oh! no - it was the beginning of a new phase in its life - time for transformation into something new and beautiful.

Firstly, Manky Rag was thoroughly rinsed in clean water - as you can see, the metamorphosis had already begun ...


... then it was hung up to dry in the sunshine ...



... and here it is now, all ready to be used to add texture and colour to mixed media projects ...


... it really is beautiful isn't it .... or is it just me?! :o)
