This is a rather lovely piece, but not at all as I had envisioned it would look today after batching, rinsing and ironing. I will remind you here, that I am working solely on silk crepe de chine, so it's quite a bit touchier than cotton or rayon. I love it, and love the curves that it throws me, and also the fantastic results. If you look really carefully in the above piece, you may see a very, very faint image of a diamond on the left side, and then if you really think about it, you may see that diamond repeated across the piece. I had used a potato dextrin resist to add that diamond image.
The above selection is a scarf which I have since overdyed, and hopefully will have results to show you tomorrow.
Below is another piece of silk crepe de chine.....once again: not what I had anticipated, but lovely nonetheless.
Once again, I used the diamond image on this piece, but I cannot see it one bit....can you?
If you thought that chartreuse was my favorite color, you are almost correct: it's complement, red violet, runs a very, very close second.....but then there's red, yellow, orange, etc. I love 'em all! Anyway, this next piece is so not what I had expected!
Kind of lovely thought, isn't it? It's just a segment of crepe de chine that I was playing with......this was its third layer of dye, and it is presently in the dye bath, hopefully graciously accepting one more layer of dye! We shall see!
Hope the Dye Gods were kind to you today!
