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.
Great examples of how you can move your dye pieces forward in colour.ReplyDelete
Also turn dyed pieces you will never use into something nice!!Delete
Nice results--gotta love that dryer vent hose! I thought I was the only one who had dyed pieces that I couldn't imagine using....ReplyDelete
Marcella used a slinky and it worked a treat!!!!Delete
