test prints and toning

5 different kinds of fabric. In each row the first one was washed in water before printing, the second was as-is, the third I sized with cornstarch. A few different experiments with the paper negatives (row 1 middle image, only half waxed; row 1 and 3 first image, negative sewn together out of two pieces of paper). And finally row 4 images 1 and 2 are my first toning experiments (bleached with borax, toned with tea). More toning will happen this week and then I will decide which fabric I like most, and which toning technique will work best.
