Cassava Paste Resist

Cassava paste is also used in Ghana as a resist for 
creating designs on fabric. 

First, the cassava flour is boiled with water 
and made into a thick gooey substance
It is then smeared over a stencil, in this case, lace.
After peeling away the lace, the cassava paste is left to dry before the fabric is dyed.
The gorgeous result!!!
I'm in love with my new dress made out of Cassava paste!
