When I visited Gallerie Smendhttp://www.smend.de in Koln earlier this year I purchased some Japanese cartons to create resists with dyeing. I have finally gotten around to experimenting with these on silk as I want to include pieces of it in my lace work. With the blue pieces I wanted it to have a watery feel, but to not have the lines one directional as I wanted more movement than that. Finally some warm weather has arrived , and I have metres and metres of fabric to dye before tonight, and then it all needs to be ironed.The heat dries that fabric quickly on the washing line fortunately.
