Golden yellow & Purple scarf

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • 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

Q&A with Debby Henning

Ruthann FS asked:
I really like the colors combination. The effect using the elastic pony tail holders :) turned out very well.
Debby Henning answered:
Yes but the small black pony tail holders are very hard to get off the wet fabric with your gloves on. I keep my gloves on all the time when dyeing. My skin is pretty sensitive to all the stuff being used.

Gorgeous! I have used beans with ponytail holders but never thought of marbles. I, too, love the color combination. Do you use Procion MX dyes?
