Completed katazome paper

I’m happy with the results of my katazome on paper experiment. I painted 3 coats of soy-based natural pigments using a very dry brush. I let the paper dry between each coat. After several days I let it soak for approx. 10 minutes in my bathtub, one sheet at a time. I drained the water out, and gently sprayed the paper to wash away the last bits of resist. Finally, I let the paper dry in the open air on top of sheets newspaper. Gentle handling is necessary. I plan a trip to the  hardware store next weekend and I should be able to complete this project. I’m following instructions from the book,  Paper Illuminated by Helen Hiebert.
