|This is a detailed shot of the finished piece. |
I hope the subtle textures and colors come through!
|I was given this photo as inspiration for the fabric by a fellow fiber artist who is creating a design with an old wood flair. If the fabric meets her needs I'll post a picture of her completed piece at a later date.|
|I started by dyeing 100% cotton in a tea bath.|
|Next I brushed fabric paint through a screen with an old toothbrush.|
|To create the suggestion of wooden slats I folded the fabric and dyed with more tea.|
|Here is the finished piece. It reads lighter in the photo and |
is actually closer to the color of brown tea.
