Remember Carol Soderlund’s “dyeing to discharge” class that I went to a couple of weeks ago? You must be “dyeing” to learn more! We took color out, put color in, then took more out, then maybe put more in. We worked 9 -10 hours a day. As I learned how to add depth and interest to my humble cotton cloth my classmates were creating many beautiful pieces in cotton, rayon, silk & even silk/cotton blend. Gradually complex cloth began to come to life in our hands.
Further work included experimenting with thickened bleach solution and thickened thiox (not shown here I was way too engrossed in my work to remember to take photos) using theromfax screens, paint brushes, rollers & rubber stamps.
A gallery of results will be shown in my next post. So stay tuned!
