I need some light background fabrics for another project and (of course) I don't have exactly what I want in my stash, so I decided to try a technique suggested by Jill at the Quilt Rat in her post here. Instead of getting out the dyes, I diluted some paint and dipped in dry fabric, squeezed it out, and scrunched it up on these "paint palettes."
I am hoping that when it is dry, the fabric will have some patterning from the paint in it. I really diluted the paint -- literally one drop to about a cup or more of water. These are some white on white fabrics that I bought a while ago, thinking that I would dye them in really bright colors and the white print would show up nicely. I'll save that fun for when the weather warms up a bit.
