|I keep forgetting to steam-set this, but see - I *knew* this sock blank|
would look better once I striped it with other colors.
This will make some nice, muddy, masculine socks.
|Indigo never disappoints.|
|Logwood on silk and rayon|
|Madder never disappoints, either.|
|These look ever so much better after a trip through to the indigo pot.|
The one on the bottom right just got stamped with wax and will
hit the indigo pot next week (no class this week).
|Just a simple cotton scarf, tied, then painted with|
some (rather old) MX dyes.
I did dye that t-shirt that I had drawn on with resist, but I'm quite discouraged by the results. Apparently, either the resist was too old, too thinned out, or I didn't put it on heavily enough because the dye soaked right through. I ended up with just a shirt that looks dip-dyed without any design on it. Next class, I'll check to see how my classmate Linda's wax-painted shirt fared in the indigo pot, then decide whether I just want to overdye the shirt or paint on it with wax, then overdye it. Feh. Pictures coming once I consider it "finished".
