Usually when I do shibori, I wrap the soda-soaked fabric around the PVC pole, wrap string around it, sometimes a rubber band at each end, scrunch it down, dip in or drizzle over with dye, batch, remove rubber bands, untie string, unwind string, unwrap fabric, rinse, wash, iron, and enjoy. Phew. I'm tired just writing about it.
Then I rolled it in dye. I mixed my dyes a little less strong than usual because I wanted to over-dye with a second round.
I used two different black dyes to get this one -- love it just the way it is.
A perfect candidate for over-dyeing. Along with the other two pieces I did.
Next: the over-dye results.
I'm linking up with Nina Marie at Off the Wall Fridays.
