The Art of Cloth Dyeing »
InstructionsPhotos of items wrapped and then the finished product. First dye bath was golden yellow, then purple #1
Type of item: Accessory
100% rayon fabric, dyed with golden yellow Procion. Banded with rubber bands and glass marbles in areas. Then overdyed with purple, also used rubber bands and glass marbles
What are you most proud of?
I like the way that the yellow comes through with the purple. Also the mixing of the yellow/purple to create the brownish color
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be careful when taking the rubber bands off the wet rayon fabric, it is fragile when it is wet and it will tear easily.
