What's your favorite color? Mine's blue....honestly, I never tire of the color blue.
But yikes, I'm in desperate need to hit the dye pots to replenish my almost depleted inventory.Seriously, I had a difficult time pulling together enough fabric for a small art piece. It's interesting how so many different techniques can still yield fabrics that can work together fairly well.
Utilized here are deconstructed screen printing, traditional indigo dyeing, and ice dyeing.
Many designers advocate working with light, medium, and dark colors.....unfortunately my darks outweigh the other two. After managing to eke out an almost pleasing arrangement, it became apparent some areas were simply too dark.
So, it was with trepidation that a hunk of indigo dyed fabric (right) was taken to the sink along with a bottle of bleach and some Q-tips.(left) Magic!! Now the ability to proceed with a better visual flow for my piece would be complete. A few dozen more threads to bury, plus the binding and I'll be able to post a photo.
In the meantime, see what magic other artists have come up with this week: Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday, Sarah's Whoop, Whoop Friday, Crazy Mom Quilts
