We made batik scarves and did some acid dyeing. We started with silk haboti scarves (72") and batiked with soy wax. We used Dye-Na-Flow paint thinned a bit with water for our colors.
Fun in the Art Greenhouse
Here are the cotton pieces Ellen and Abby made
Judith was batiking some cotton as a third or fourth layer
Getting ready to acid dye (overdye) a batiked scarf. Vinegar, water to add dye to and a microwavable dish.
Dye added to dish and covered with plastic wrap.
Nine or so holes punched in the film to release steam.
This looked like a fun thing to try. I hope to get a photo of the finished scarf from Ellen who I gave it to after forgetting to photograph it (sigh)
When I acid dyed a scarf for myself which I already gave away
As they say in Maine "A good time was had by all"
The end of a perfect day. So happy to have Ellen and Abby visiting!!
