Anyway, I do have some photos to share. I made a piece of shibori fabric this morning. I really love it. Totally different from what I usually do, but very good.
it started out that purple on the top. then i bleached it out and it turned a fresh greenish yellowish.
then, i didn't want to keep it like that, so i rinsed the thiox (bleaching stuff) off and put it in a blue dyebath. because the thiox was still all over the inside layers, it kept the dye from getting in the fabric. at least, that's what we decided.
and the boldness is great, but the subtleties are by far the best part.
I dyed a piece of silk organza a deep teal color, like that teal-blue but darker. It's such a good color. The only good color I got today! And I'll incorporate that and lots of thread into this piece. Yay!
