..eggs in the grass!
Clamp your folded fabric in between two plexiglass shapes (purchased here) and this is what happens! This technique is called itajime shibori.
I played with color mixing a little yesterday to come up with something more subdued than my usual brights.
I like them! At the moment, I have only eight different colors to work with, but there are endless combinations. I also started documenting on sheets of drawing paper how many parts of this and that to use to reproduce a particular color. Kind of like a recipe but more fun than cooking!
I intend to make this part of my dyeing process every time, so I’ll need to neaten it up a little.
I’m officially another year older. I can now get my senior discount at Hancock’s every first Wednesday of the month. Party!
Take the short trip to Sarah’s to see who is Whooping it up. Have a glorious weekend!
