These were the samples I made while demonstrating different mark making techniques. I used previously dyed fabrics.
This one was triangle fold on the left, gathered stitched in an S shape in the middle and right edge scrunched into a point and wrapped with thread.
Arashi Shibori (gathered and wrapped on a PVC pipe)
scrunched into a ball and held in place with elastics
My sister made this with a brush and potato masher and hot soy wax (batik)
Ikea chip clips
Idea stolen from Laura Kemshalls Instagram post. Wooden hearts used as a resist
again on pinker fabric
Pink fabric and round plexi discs used as a resist
a few marbles
My sister made this with a stamp and hot soy wax (batik)
I tried to no avail to use the heart shaped wooden blocks as a reist. The fabric was treated and I hadn't washed it in advance. It was also a pretty heavy canvas. The indigo just wouldn't penetrate.
