White scoured pfd fabric was imprinted with wax, dyed with jet black, pewter, or elephant grey. Then dried and wax resist was applied again. I then subtracted most of the black that wasn't under wax. This resulted in pastel shades with white and dark waxed areas. When this was finished and dry, I dyed the ones with black waxed areas with azure, sea glass, and baby blue. The pewter got treated to orange crush, daffodil, and Sahara. Elephant waxed ones received watermelon, bougainvillea, and wisteria. I really like the visual texture that appeared after the de-waxing, rinsing, washing, drying, and final pressing!
Here are a couple of snow dyed examples from CraftA Life
Additional examples from our guest artist, Wil:
Here are some samples of snow and icedyed fabric. The blue one was folded before I put it into the gutter. The third one was tied with pebbles or buttons before I covered it with ice. BTW I use dye powder instead of concentrate in high quantities, no measuring :-)
And finally for this post, some examples from another of our guest artists for this month, Francie:
I like to create my own dyed and textured fabric. My favorite methods are shibori resist (first photo) and mono-printing (I'm only showing the mono-print plate because the fabric will be shown in the third week of this month - Kelly), both using Procion MX dyes.Thanks again to all you wonderfully talented people for sharing your creativity and inspiration!! Until this evening.........
