Mud Cloth

Unpacking from the last trip I found a piece of mud cloth I did in the workshop in Durango last July. I was really pleased with how it turned out, however, now I want to make a larger piece but I don't have any of the black mud.  The black mud (Michigan swamp mud) was supplied by the instructor and there was only a small bit to go around.  I telephoned my brother in St Louis and asked if he would traipse out to the Missouri swamps to see if he can find black mud. This project will lay in the back of my mind until little brother gets me some mud.  When I called he had several friends over and after I told him what I wanted, he announced to everyone that he had one crazy sister but he's going to go out digging in the mud so who's crazy?
