Curing, soaking, frosty garden

While preparing my stencil-dyed cloth for a soak in the tub this a.m., I noticed this frosty vision superimposed on the back yard.

The fabric has been curing for about a week, hanging from the ceiling near a radiator. The backside shows the raised texture created by contrast between the dried rice paste resist and the dyed areas.

The work soaks in the tub for awhile to dissolve the rice paste resist. Now it is hanging to dry.
