|I began by randomly placing the whiffle balls in the damp cotton fabric |
and securing them with rubber bands.
|For this piece I painted with dyes. Dyes can be applied with a brush just like fabric paint so why not go for it! The colors collect and mingle in the folds of the fabric creating those darker colors.|
|This piece was painted with fabric paint and left to dry in the sun. Be sure the fabric is damp to encourage the paints to spread into all the folds.|
|Here is a detail of a painted piece. You can see how the paint dries at intermittent times creating fun wiggly lines!|
|As I recall the balls in this piece were spaced a little further apart than the ones in the first picture. This created more individual shapes.. give the technique a try and let me know how your whiffle ball piece comes out!|
