Q&A with Kathy Riggs

Jo-Mo asked:
love your results :-)
Kathy Riggs answered:
Thank you
Debby Henning asked:
Could you explain a little more on how you wrapped this? The varigation and texture is beautiful, what awesome results. What color. Intrude is that?
Kathy Riggs answered:
I used uneven scraps of bubble wrap, torn. Rolled the 24" square fabric cata-corner with several large-ish flat stones wherever I had room. Had flaps at end corners. Put some bubble wrap pieces in there also, Banded where I could to hold it together. Folded end flaps in, then folded again. Banded tightly on the outside to add pressure. Put a rock on top in the container to sink it in the dye solution. Really, I just stuffed, rolled, folded and banded it with flat rocks, made a mess of it. Came out fun, curious. Imagine the worst wrapped present ever. That's it. I think I stirred up teal.
Debby Henning asked:
Well, spell checker strikes again. I meant to say what color mixture is that the bubble wrap and rocks were done in, it looks like black, but has some green on it as well. Also, could you explain how you wrapped that lovely bundle with the rocks and bubble wrap?
Kathy Riggs answered:
Maybe some black, sure . I have great plans to keep track of what I'm doing before I start. HAHAHAHAHa
