More Pattern - More Color!
I really had a great time in Carol's class however by the time Thursday afternoon hit I was overwhelmed with all the new information I was learning. I had to step back and just watch for a little while.
There were so many beautiful colors and patterns all around!
I just had to sit and soak it all in!
That afternoon we also learned how to discharge and over-dye a t-shirt using a shibori pole.
And how to make this cool design using thiox immersion discharging.
I pulled myself together after a good nights rest and did a little more work on the last day. One of my favorite things I managed was this piece. I had discharged it earlier in the week with thiox paste but the thiox wasn't strong enough. Notice the lighter round shapes in the back ground?
So I pulled it out, threw some of the same washers on top along with some other circle shapes and sprayed it with DeColourant mist.
I think it looks like a few hundred galaxies far, far away.
I'm not sure if I will over-dye it or leave it as is.
Maybe just a little quilting is all it needs.
Timmy's studio, where the workshop was held, was a real treat.
Between the 16 wonderful people I got to share the week with. . .
. . . the fantastic two level facility. . .
. . .and the beautiful surroundings, it was a very fun and unforgettable week!
Let's do this again sometime soon!
