I am finally able to get back to fabric design after my class with Carol Soderlund. She opened so many doors for me with the techniques she taught. I had to order product, and then the family really thought I should buy groceries, do laundry and those other mundane things that keep us from what we enjoy.
I’d like to share some of the work I’ve done. A couple of days ago I discharged black fabrics with thiox, one with a stamp and one with a screen. The next day I painted them with thickened procion dye. But I have limited space, so to rest my painted fabric, I had to enlist the “support” of our Miata.
And here they lay overnight, albeit covered with plastic as they rested and cured.
And it was worth it – and here are the results:
I discharged a couple of fat quarters I had in my “needs more work” bin.
Maybe needs more???
Not just sure what. Suggestions?
Need to eliminate the white areas??? Love how the blue/green discharges to turquoise as does the black.
There is so much more to explore that I hope to be able to share much more work as the next few days and weeks progress. The weather in Colorado has been beautiful, my work will be determined by the temperature and fall of moisture. (Lots of folks wanting snow at the ski resorts!!!)
Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated!
