Ugly duckling 2
Here is the second ugly duckling. I don't remember anymore how I dyed this piece of fabric, but it did not turn out great:
First step to improve it, is to over dye it. I soda soaked it, crunched it and placed it in this glass jar. It is the middle piece. Added ice cubes and a couple of teaspoons of rosebud procion dye powder.
The next day it looked like this:
Much improved, but I wanted to do more to it. My stamp this time was a slice of loofah and as paint I used burgundy Lumiere textile paint.
And a second layer using a bigger slice of loofah and gold nugget metallic Bella paint.
With this as result. Isn't it gorgeous?
