More About Mudcloth

A fellow polymer clay artist, treasurefield, in commenting about my Mudcloth cuff bracelet, said she wondered if the original mudcloth technique really used mud. I thought it did, so I looked up a couple of sites about the history of mudcloth. Here is site that gives you a summary of the origin and significance of mudcloth.

I also ran across a site where you can virtually design you own piece of mudcloth. You can try it here. I had fun with this, but I don't believe I'll be making any real mudcloth any time soon.
