Overdyeing

Overdyeing is the best way I know of to "fix" things that aren't exactly what I wanted or aren't something I think I will ever use.

I took three out of the four turquoise fat quarters that I used in my turquoise experiment earlier this month, applied a beeswax resist using an egg carton,

then dyed them again in Kelly Green, Sapphire, and a mixture of the two--

These will each make a pretty nice little pillow, hopefully.

And the piece here on the left was also batiked with an egg carton--

Then overdyed with a purple & lemon yellow mixture to tone down the bright colors and make the background brownish, and it now looks like this:
 This is my last post about Ann Johnston's DVD, it's been a very fun month!

  1. Thank you Laura and everyone who contributed this month. I cannot wait for the weather to warm up a bit so I can do some dyeing in my garage!
