The last of the marbling
Remember I told you that I had created even better marbled fabric at Rosalita's? I now have them back and can show them to you.
I didn't post the pictures in order. I did the orange/blue/brown one first and then the other three. See how I moved from just trying to cover the surface to trying to make a more specific pattern on the surface? I thought that was showing some added sophistication in my rudimentary technique. I want to try marbling again but use some fabric that I have already dyed once and see if I can get the marbling and the dye patterns to coordinate some. Anyone try that?
