Experiment for the week

After a session of snow-dyeing I had not cleaned up right away.  As a result the dye that had dripped from the snow-dyed fabric had dried to the bottom of the tray.  I thought the pattern was intriguing and "wondered what would happen if".....I just put some SA soaked fabric down on it to dye the fabric.

Here is why I was so intrigued by the patterning of the dried dye...


And here is the result of placing the SA soaked fabric onto the tray and just patting it down to connect as much as possible.


Cool or what!!!??  Now I'm going to overdye it with some light green....or perhaps a lighter blue....we'll just have to see what happens!!  I haven't decided yet.

Absolutely! I'm doing the snow-dyeing for Week Four of the Celebrate Snow Giveaway today. Hopefully I'll have some more fun dried dyes to play with!

Great effect!! The advantages of not cleaning up straight away (don't tell Dianne)

Shhhhhh I won't utter a word! The secret is safe with me!!

Very cool. I love the tuxtural element.

Me too, Beth. I've overdyed it now and will wash it out this afternoon. Hopefully it will be a usable piece for one of my series for 2013.

What a great "shadow" of the previous piece of art work. Sounds like you could get a whole series going...the original and the shadow piece...:)
