I had brought some dyed fabric and some river mud with me from the Bani- the tributary to the Niger which flows past Djenne. My mother and I painted and washed the fabric in a very different water…I have now entrusted my mother with a scientific commission: Is it possible to paint with Swedish mud, or does it have to be with mud from the Niger or the Bani? She will try it on the remaining bits of fabric and report her findings.
