Q&A with Jim Vander Noot

SharonTM asked:
I love the lime green color. I tried bubble wrap too. Did you find a way to keep the fabric from floating?
Jim Vander Noot answered:
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.
