I love this! It reminds me of the patterns on a turtle's back. Could you give a little more information about the colors you used and the way you did the rubber banding?

Thank you! I love that you see a turtle's back. I see rippling water. This could also be done in a green tone for the turtle or a blue for water! How exciting would that be!!! See my project "tomato rubber bands" for a picture of the first manipulation and result. The overdye was done with the same rubber band manipulation but with starting in a different corner. I would like to do a piece with the same rubber band manipulation in all four corners! The color used was Jane Dunewold's "tomato" mixture which is one part boysenberry and one part golden yellow.
