Maine Event day two


I used to read a blog by Melody Johnson. She said her middle name was "all color, all the time". I  have adopted her middle name. I love color. This was the day I had been looking forward to enjoying.

We used 45 X 45 pieces of pre-soaked fabric either plant fibers or silk and silk screens to create one of a kind designs. Using thickened MX dyes we covered our fabrics with a selection of fourteen different silk screens, each with a different graphic design.


We used the thickened dyes to turn our yardage into fabulous fabric.














If you hang them on the line to dry they will flap around and the dye will get all over the place. I found (by accident) that the warm asphalt will dry the dye soaked fabric in 30 - 60 minutes.

  1. Wonderful colors, wonderful patterns! Takes me back to 2007 when I took a week-long class from Melanie Testa, and we did a lot of screen printing, monoprinting, and other colorful treatments on fabric. Then we hung them out in the patio off the classroom and transformed it into a beautiful moving colorful display!
