BITS OF THIS AND THAT

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO EVERYONE

No fireworks in the

Grand Valley except for these

on the back of my vest.  One of my

favorites that resulted from

deconstructed screen printing.  I also

like the little road runner on the bottom edge.

Today my task is to get the stretcher ready

so that I can do some more silk scarf painting

tomorrow.   It will be a fun day with Mary

at her Color Creek studio.

Tomorrow I should have pictures of

my first ice dyeing results.

Be sure to check back to see the results.

ENJOY

Fabric dyeing like life is full of surprises

The dye master is ready.   The swamp cooler is

working great.  Now to see what is

going to happen today.  The results are always a surprise when

I dye fabrics.  The latest thing in my group is to do

ice dyeing.  This is a new adventure for me so we

shall see what develops.

The dyes are out of the fridge, a t shirt has

been dyed and is ready to batch.  The fabrics are put

into a container with ice and the dye powder.  Now it’s to

wait 24 hours to see the results.  That is the hard

part.  No one ever accused me of

being able to wait well.
