Shibori dyeing with onion skins...
I decided to try the shibori technique using onion skins instead of the colorhue dyes. This was very successful and I know I will do more using this method. The silk picks up the onion skin color in less than an hour while simmering in the pot. I just put the onion skins in a stainless steel pot with water, brought it to a simmering point, threw in the stitched shibori and that was it.
The first pattern is the same as in the last post. Click on the pictures for a closer view.
