Five Easy Pieces

I just couldn't resist that!!! It's Beth here with my take on a Round Robin with myself! I wanted to do a few pieces because you never know how one piece will turn out PLUS I just love layering techniques on a fat quarter.

I started with three pieces of white cotton, a shibori piece of blue on really poor quality cotton and either a pink LWI dyed piece or a brown shibori. OK, I know that's six but I'll winnow one out in keeping with my theme.

Poor quality (low thread count and coarse) fabric. One will go

Brown shibori experimental piece.

Now with the white fabric I taped them down and sprayed heavily with water.

On this one I painted purple, glimmer yellow and olive Pebo Seta-Color. LOTS of water. Then I added salt.

This one I wetted with the spray bottle then dropped drips of Dye-Na-Flow paint and watched them spread.

This one was saturated with sprayed water then I brushed globs of Jacquard's Halo Green which is green paint with gold mixed in. The gold tends to rise to the top. A fabulous paint.

Then I scrunched it all up, spreading the paint around and left it scrunched on the table til it dried.


Dried and ironed

Ready for stage 2 tomorrow.


  1. Wonderful work, Beth. You do me appetite to paint myself ... I did not do this for a long time.

  2. Such flowingness, if that is a word! Your art play seems like it is so fulfilling! What will I paint today??

  3. Very nice fabrics, good experiment.

  4. What a lovely experiments. Not a surprising color scheme, but I love them. The Jacquard with gold is really beautiful. I will try to find that paint overhere. If not.....
