Lots of rags - check. Spray bottles, sponges and brushes - check. Drying rack, clothes pins, apron, drop cloth, fabric - check. And also make sure I'm wearing old home around clothes - check! This was my list of supplies for a fun day of dying.
Our super organized Karen with all the dyes in containers. There were 6 of us who met to spend our Saturday dying, painting and playing to our hearts content.
Here Karen had scrunched up some pre-soaked ready to dye fabric and she was painting the tops of the scrunches black. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of how it turned out but it was very neat and something I'd like to try.
I dyed, painted and did a bit of stenciling on a variety of material such as lutradur, felt, aida cloth, linen, cotton and also some white silk roving.
I sprinkled salt on a couple of pieces and as it drew the colour in, it made such a neat effect. I'll make a few miniature landscape pieces, artist trading cards, stitched cards and who knows what else but now I have lots of neat fabric to stitch on :)
And to end out my super fun day of playing with fabric, here is our cat Momo sitting on the front stoop amid the flower pots.
