In this session I sprinkled dye across the surface in 2 different ways. I either sprinkled the dye and let it sit undisturbed on the fabric or I scrunched the fabric and then sprinkled the dye across the surface. It was tons-o-fun! If you give it a try don't forget to wear a MASK - super important! Also, the fabric is soaked in soda ash and water prior to adding the dye. Please feel free to email me if you have questions about the technique: carolReaton@comcast.net.

Here are some more detail photos. If you'd like to see the full piece let me know but the details photograph more true to the colors!
|In this piece I dragged a comb across the dye!|
In these next 2 pieces I scrunched the fabric before applying the dye. It gives the fabric a nice texture... the skies the limit for what to create from it!
Give it a try... my suggestion is to take the project outside! The dye tends to wander and make it's own decisions about where it will land!
