When I thought about what I was going to do for this Round Robin, I realized that almost every piece of fabric that I've created over the past few years was a series of different techniques that I performed on it, which is technically what a round robin is. Usually it gets passed on from one person to the next, but we're doing our own kind of round robin here--a Solo, which is a little bit harder, in my opinion.
We all probably have some fabric we've dyed or done something to that we aren't in love with--what do you do with it? I tend to put mine away for a while, and think about what else I want to do with it to try to get something I want to use. So, for this, I pulled out a piece of fabric that I dyed a while back that was just kind of "blah". It's about 2 yards long x 44 inches. It was originally dyed with turquoise and sun yellow. I had dyed it flat, pouring the colors onto it and leaving it in the sun, covered, for a few hours.
I really had hoped that the two colors would blend more and create more green, which didn't happen. So, I ripped it up into several smaller pieces.
I decided to batik one of the pieces, so I got out some circle shapes. I choose the smaller one, part of a pool noodle (not recommended, as you will see)...
Here it is all stamped, you really can't tell the difference between the pool noodle shape and the potato shape, can you?
Let it all soak in for about an hour--
Here it is with the wax removed, washed, and ready to go:
