Thought I'd better upload these photos from the second black shibori batch I did last week, before I do the third batch today! The black used in these photos is Procion #300. This black is bluer than the first batch (Procion #39). Quite a bit of purple washed out in the final rinse, leaving blue-turquoise edges. Lovely!
The first piece above -- can you tell what I used as the resist? The piece below was wrapped on a piece of very thick poly rope.
Third piece below is bomaki arashi ~ sew the long edges of the fabric together and fit over a pipe, scrunch down, hold the edges with rubber bands or thin fabric strips tied very tightly, and dye.
Anyhow, back to the studio!
