What materials did you use? Folded fabric rolled around bubble wrap and banded. Overpoured with orange and lime dye.

I love the lime green color. I tried bubble wrap too. Did you find a way to keep the fabric from floating?

I was a little disappointed that the texture wasn't more pronounced. Since this was an overpour, it wasn't totally immersed in a dye bath. I'm going to have to experiment more with bubble wrap. My personal opinion is the wrap has to be tighter. Also, I want to compare this technique vs printing with fabric paint on an already dyed fabric.
