Playdate with Judith AND FAMILY

Yes. Judith's daughter and grand daughter were visiting from Ohio and were able to come over for a day of play!!!

We made batik scarves and did some acid dyeing. We started with silk haboti scarves (72") and batiked with soy wax. We used Dye-Na-Flow paint thinned a bit with water for our colors.



Fun in the Art Greenhouse






Here are the cotton pieces Ellen and Abby made






Judith was batiking some cotton as a third or fourth layer



Getting ready to acid dye (overdye) a batiked scarf. Vinegar, water to add dye to and a microwavable dish.


Dye added to dish and covered with plastic wrap.



Nine or so holes punched in the film to release steam.



Beautiful colors



This looked like a fun thing to try. I hope to get a photo of the finished scarf from Ellen who I gave it to after forgetting to photograph it (sigh)



When I acid dyed a scarf for myself which I already gave away



Get ready!!




As they say in Maine "A good time was had by all"



Happy artists



The end of a perfect day. So happy to have Ellen and Abby visiting!!
