Making Sky

I decided to make some abstract sky today and I like he way it turned out. I also made some realistic (sort of) sky with a horizon of trees. I haven't washed anything out yet but the fabric batched and dry looks good.

This was the batik sky and I really like the bottom most panel. I had started to "roll" it up to package and batch but took a few pics first

Love this

Sky fabric I dyed about 6 years ago

Two other appropriate blue pieces for sky plus a plexiglas palette for thickened dyes and a natural sponge to apply the dye. 

First touches of chartreuse


This is the cotton cover after the dye painting
