Some of these samples have been more successful than others but hopefully I have followed the instructions and produced the correct results. Some of the rubbings in 1.3 were super but some not so good – perhaps a heavier weight of paper would have helped. I always enjoy discharge as you end up with interesting colours and never really know what to expect when the bleach is applied.
