A piece of cotton cloth from Zigu Zagu, stiff in texture, with markings, circles. I wonder if they were for a shibori design originally as this is very old cloth. Approx. 15" wide and 2m long. It will keep my busy. The backing is a beautiful fine old silk kimono lining. All will be stitched with a variety of red threads.
Some more dyeing.... a tin can that soaked for a few days in an old onion skin bath, ready for opening and a colour catcher indigo dyed with Nat.
This is a close up of the colour catcher (thank you Deanna via Nat). The resist was made by folding and clamping. I have something in mind for this....when I get a few more made.
The results from the tin can dyeing (method a la Deanna and Jude Hill). I used a folded piece of very fine wool, from a deconstructed kimono from Zigu Zagu again.
Close up. The internal rings remind me of the rings when a tree is cut down.
This week is more stitching and I need to do some painting...play with those neons.
I hope you have a creative week.
