It was an absolutely beautiful day here
The sun was shining,
the sky was a beautiful deep blue,
and we were in our workshop with
All was right with the world!
I began my day by discharging the black shirt
I had worn to class
Most of my 'work' shirts are
the Faded Glory brand,
and you can see how the black tees
discharge in Thiox.
One of our classmates lives on a ranch
and they castrate animals occasionally.
She brought in a castrating tool.......
and a bag of about 100 heavy duty rubber bands.
I used said tool and bands to enclose
on this piece of hand-dyed red rayon:
It came out looking like this:
I also used it on this piece of hand-dyed linen:
and got this out of the bath:
and then this after unfurling:
I also tried resisting on this piece of hand-dye:
and after a second step,
I ended up with this:
This is a piece of folded and stitch-resisted linen:
after the discharge bath:
after removing stitches
and here is the piece I held between my toes
(it's the large piece in the center -
pardon me, I'm too tired and it's too late
thanks for dropping by
PEACE to YOU!
