More Shibori dyeing experiments...
Used up the leftover dyes by over dyeing some pieces from yesterday with some new wooden templates I bought at Michaels this morning. I also dropped some used color catcher sheets into the dye. It takes the dye real well. Tried to tone down the colors some. I prefer muted colors but it will take me a while to learn how to achieve that. I also took that last piece I posted yesterday, cut it into strips and wove it with one of the pieces that turned out quite light. I love the way this weaving turned out. Seems like saturation of the lighter silks create the most beautiful designs. I have a hard time getting the dye to penetrate through the heavier silk.
