Discharge Paste Step 2

After they dried I ironed them with a steam iron (good ventilation). Different colors discharge faster than others....after you do a few you will get the hang for how long to keep the iron on a spot and how much steam it needs (some don't need any)....and you can go back over an area to see if it will get lighter....I like to get a variety of shades, it makes a piece more interesting.

Then I wash in the machine with hot water and synthropol....if a lot of color comes out I wash again and then iron. The pieces could also be over-dyed now...depending on your preferences.
