Hand Dyed Fabrics – Second Group


I think the lime is even less visible in this piece, but there are some interesting shapes that came from the way the fabric was manipulated.


I have a feeling the first layer on this piece was paint rather than dye. The lime is showing up much better on this one.


The first layer for this piece was dye painted and I used a variety of different resists to get the designs. It was originally a dark aqua or turquoise before I overdyed it with the lime. It has some “interesting” things happening.

The rest of the fabrics I dyed with the lime dye are not anything I care to even show you, so this is the end of the lime dye session.

Stay tuned as I will be showing blacks next.
