Variety of Techniques - Mystery Technique - Week 5

Oh my.....the end of another week already.

Sorry for the later post. Picasa and I have been having some serious "discussions" about my photos. Don't you just love arguing with you computer????  At least this time I finally won the argument!!

OK....so on with the show.

Here is the mystery technique for today.  As usual, post all guesses in the comment section below. The winner will be drawn randomly from all correct answers.  No correct answers - the winner will be drawn from all of the comments.

Ready?

Here it is......


I am looking forward to all your creative guesses!!

I'll see you back here on Monday to reveal the mystery technique.  Until then....

Have a WONDERFUL and creative weekend!!

  4. Paint wet fabric, scrunch creating "peaks" and " valleys", scatter ice cubes and salt over the fabric and let dry. Peaks are the darkest areas and the valleys the lighest.

  5. What Pam just wrote is my guess. i am a big fan of folding,pleating,scrunching up wet painted fabric and forgetting about it until dry. Salt also moves the moisture around for yet more unplanned texture!

  6. My guess would be using salt in some way. Not sure where you are based, if snow dyeing would be an option for you.

  10. Soda soaked fabric scruned up and placed in plastic pan or other container. Dye applied by foam brush , syringe, or dripping. The fabric sits in the container until completely dye. The dye migrates to create darker and lighter ares.

  11. ignore previous comment.
    I meant tightly scrunched SNOW dyeing - with the dry snow we get here in Alberta.

  12. Snow dyeing, salt and plastic wrap. It's pretty however it was done!

  13. This looks like snow dyeing to me...softer results than ice dyeing.

  14. Snow dying and then splatter bleaching on top

  15. I suspect it is ice dyed due to some fairly consistent shapes in one area that must have remained frozen in the innermost area of the scrunched fabric. However, there may be both ice and snow in the mix. My guess is that it's two colors, blue with either yellow or green, probably green and no bleach. Salt or sugar are good possibilities.
