Some very old bits and bobs, over dyed with a shibori layer. This one reminds me of the Aurora - night flowers perhaps
a tiny scrap with a little shibori applied to the "leaves", previously mono printed
another second layer on my Eco shibori - this with royal rather than turquoise to see what happens; the latest in the the Homage dyeing experiments. I've been stitching that as well but no pics to show at the moment
A bit of silk viscose dyed a couple of weekends ago
And these, given an initial layer yesterday, washed, rinsed, dried, ironed ready for today's layer. These are very small bits of fabric, test pieces to look at how the fabric reveals the dye. Satin viscose and silk velvet - I stitched both pieces with similar patterns.
the velvet was really thirsty for all that colour
Each cut in half. Now to add a next layer of dye. First stitching to re-shibori, echoing what has gone before. Again, I'm also testing to see how much dye each fabric will take.
above shows the backs. I try to echo or at least stitch in harmony with the layer below in the next layer of stitches. All pulled up tight.
Now sitting in a very small pot of mixed turquoise, black and a smidge of golden yellow
Again, I'll report later
