Someone asked me what my favorite piece from my Olympic dyeing looked like before this last shibori dyeing.
My photos are all over the place on my computer and it can take hours to find a particular photo.
I found it as I was scrolling through one of my ways to find photos…must have been well over 5000 there.
This is the before: it is silk noil that has been painted and then shibori dyed once. I was not happy with it.
This is the after. I love it and it was one of my most successful pieces in the batch of fabrics I dyed.
Almost everything I have been (or will be soon) shibori dyeing recently started as Dye Dogs. I am finding the complexity of layers of pattern are creating fabrics that are so much more interesting than the results when I start with plain white fabric.
I can’t wait to see the next batches. Just need to wrap some more poles to fill the buckets.
