I've been busy studying Shibori, the ancient Japanese art of fabric dying. My original post can be found here.
I explained the basic technique in this post.
This was my first attempt at folding the fabric and using a wooden cut-out as a resist tool.My second attempt was folding, then rolling the fabric to create this result.
From my first round of Shibori practice, I learned a few things:
1. Keep the fabric in the dye for at least 10 minutes to get a deeper color dye.
2. Be sure to have enough resist tools for the layers of fabric.
3. The actual unveiling after the fabric has been dyed is always exciting!
I was happy with the results of Round 1, but I wanted to do some more. So, I did. More posts to follow.
