I have to admit when I look at the fabrics I paint and dye they are irresistible. The fabrics I am showing you today are cottons. The techniques I used on these are similar to those I used on the silks I shared on Friday.
To create this effect I used many layers of dyeing on this piece of fabric. It is one of my favorites.
This started as a pale yellow fabric with a white design. The white design is more like a paint and doesn't take the dye. You can see the reverse of the fabric here.
I creates a slight show through texture on the right side.
This piece also has at least three layers of pattern because of the multiple dye baths. The colors are cooler and not as strong as the red piece.
The layering on this is created with monochromatic blue dye baths. It almost looks like an Xray!
