Judith's great adventure part 2

Soon into our monotyping adventure, my camera battery died so the remaining pictures I took were out of focus because there seems to be something wrong with my "purse camera". That said, here is a brief view of what transpired.
 This is Judith using a credit card to spread the thickened dye on to the gelatin
 These are first layer photos. You can see which one I took with the "purse" camera - sigh.
 These are photos of the second layer going on.
Great picture of Judith is action

More multiple layer photos
Judith using netting and a dollie to print and as a colograpgh. Not sure I spelled dollie correctly.
This was MY contribution - occasionally holding Judith yarn while she replenished the dye paste.
Best picture of the day. A tub of print paste with a scoop of emerald green (ProChem) dye powder. Could I turn this into a quilt?


  1. oh that looks like so much fun! Wish I could play with you both. :)

  2. I love the way you are playing with the lighter prints and the darker layer on top of it, it gives so much interest to the cloth. Will keep that in mind!

  3. The double printing is amazing -- I think it makes such interesting results. (And I LOVE the last picture too!)
