THIS is what I was trying to do

This will be almost impossible to describe in words. I love the colors and I love MOST of the fabric and I am on the right road - I just need some more perfecting. The only way I can describe this is that I grabbed a bunch of fabric in my hand, jammed it in a pot of dye and used the fabric to wipe out the pot. The last time (which was the first time)







I was also cleaning up the posts and using up the last drops of dye instead of washing it down the drain.

Here is the second successful piece of cloth







I love all these nuances of color. I will be doing more experiments with this technique now that I can even call it a technique.

  1. I'm on board with calling this a technique:) I plan to use it the next time I dye!

  2. Love this, I plan to make a serendipity cloth with the next project, take it round 400 budding textile artists! Might work/might not :)

  3. What a wonderful way to clean up. I have blob rags for wiping up spills and these often become background fabrics. But wiping out pots too - I'll try this next time instead of washing out :-)
