Still, I found time to spend outside with some fabric dyes. Here is a selection of pieces that I dyed in the last few weeks. Techniques that I used included:
wheat paste resist
thickened procion dyes
Some of these pieces are going to make great backgrounds!
Plein air painting with dyes onto fabric.
Painting on fabric with watercolour crayons and textile medium.
This piece is still in layout format. The next step is to stitch, then go in with some thread painting, and some oils. The background fabric has the deconstructive silkscreening process used on it.
Another at the same stage.
Now when the cool weather comes I am ready to spend some time at the sewing machine with all these pieces to complete.
This one is a watercolour on PAPER! It's a plein air painting I did one afternoon in a friend's backyard.
