Parfait dyeing-Laura

Since last Monday was my birthday, I took the day off and sewed and did some dyeing. I had posted these pictures on my blog, but forgot to post here.
This first piece was a yellow-ish color to start, which I parfait dyed using khaki in the bottom layer. I had previously carved a stamp and had stamped several designs on it, but the color contrast got a little washed out due to the dye colors I used and the design is hard to see now.

This second piece was a turquoise piece, which I stamped with a starfish that I carved, and then parfait dyed as the second layer--I think I used a pink dye powder.

  2. These are gorgeous! Did you use paint for the starfish or was that a resist?
