I've recently been playing around with fabric paints and dyes just to keep the creative urge satisfied. I decided to do some stamping on old handkerchiefs. Here are close ups of some of the results.
This one was done with a potato masher and the end of a thread spool;
this one with a cross cut of a snail shell and the edge of scallop shell;
and this one with the end of a thread spool and electric plug. Click on the pictures for a closer look.
Some dye that had been sitting in the spare fridge in the basement came along with me to a dyeing session with one of my art groups. Here are the results of that playing.
The yellows went from very vibrant to a very pale.
The one on the left was wrapped around a small pvc pipe and "scrunched". That scrunching acted as a resist. I'll overdye that one I think.
Till the next time, thanks for visiting.
