I mentioned in my last art newsletter list that I would post pictures of the sequence for folding, clamping with clothespins and dyeing silk using Color Hue dyes. Someone emailed after the previous newsletter requesting photos. Here they are.
1 and 2. Lay out silk fabric and clothespins.Fold Silk in half.
3. Fold in Half to form a square.
4. Fold to form a triangle and repeat for a smaller triangle.
6. Clamp with wooden Clothespins and Dye around the pins on both sides using Color Hue Dyes.
7. After dyeing around the pins on both sides of the fabric and when the water around the silk is clear, remove the pins. Open up your design. Spray over resisted lighter areas if you want to shift the contrast.
