ummmm nope....can't. There are so many types of resist (many of which have been covered here) I won't even attempt to count them. Cuz even if I did....some of you would come up with others and then what??? My count would be all off!!! LOL!!
This is not actually a resist class. Most of you know SOME kind of resist you enjoy. If you are looking for perhaps a new and different resist, check out the labels on the right sidebar of this blog. There are several there. What we want to do today is look at how we can use resists (with thickened dye) to create perceived texture.
Just for a refresher....
1)Take the fabric of your choice
2)Apply whatever resist you want to use in whatever manner you wish to use it to create the negative space.
3)When the resist is dry, apply the thickened dye
4)Process as usual for dyeing fabrics (batching/drying, rinsing, washing, drying, ironing, enjoying the results)
Here is a piece I did with baby cereal. (being a grandmother of 5 I did seem to accumulate several boxes of this stuff )
Next I hung in on the drying rack. The cereal resist was thick enough that it didn't drip or run. It stayed here until completely dry.
Then I bent the fabric a lot to "break" the resist so that it was cracked all over. The final part was to "paint" it all over with black dye. Now for the hard part.......waiting.....batching...... Finally it was all dry again. Next, I had to soak it in water in a bucket (didn't want all that cereal to go down my drain) until I could remove all the resist. wash, rinse, dry and iron and VOILA!! A very textured looking piece!!!
Do all the usual stuff...let it dry...rinse all the stuff off...wash...dry...iron and here is the result. I can so see this used in an art quilt as lake or puddle in the rain....or little kids tossing stones into the lake.
