pounded fabric

As I wrote in my post of January 29, I prepared a piece of fabric with the technique pounding. Setting this up does not take much time - place a piece of crunched fabric in a plastic bag and use a bristle brush to apply diluted paint over it - but to see the result you really have to be patient. The container has been on top of the radiator for a week before I could take out the fabric to iron it. But I have to say, the result is worth waiting for:
It looks like the fabric is still crunched, but it is really completely flat. The pattern just look like folding lines.

Did you actually pound it with something or just scrunch it up in a bag?
