Arashi shibori

My recent attempts at pole wrapped shibori.

Supplies all ready to go.

Two pieces of fabric fabric wrapped around a piece of PVC pipe (around 8" in diameter, I think), with dye mixture squirted onto them. I think this was navy blue dye, and one piece of fabric started out white, the other was a light grey.

And here are the finished products--

I'm going to try this again, using the paint-on method used by Beth from Maine, and see how that works. I also have some silk scarf blanks from Dharma that I'm going to use the Procion MX dyes on and see how they turn out.
