Cloth Works updates.

Greetings All,
I have been trying to ice dye and Red/Black/Green piece and here are my two results.  Both are cotton and were 1st dyed Apple Green 45 with Rit liquid dye then dyed with Rit powder dye in Wine and Black.

I love this fan design that I achieved by shibori folding (below).  This has been a great learning curve for sure.

Cloth Works update...

Greetings All,
I have spent the last week doing some "Ice Dyeing" and I have been loving it.  This piece is a part of a series of pieces that I dyed with Rit Dye in the color of Teal 4 in powder form.  The piece below on the right was done in a folded shibori style that I was not happy with and decided to over dye it with the ice and more of the powdered dye.  I love the pooling that the ice does and adds more texture to the cloth.  

The piece below is the 1st piece that I created with the ice dye technique and I am loving the whole process thanks to Rit Dye.

Wearable update

Greetings All,
For the past week I have been dying fabric and yesterday I did some ice dying and over dyed some yardage that I didn't like.  I love my new "Cherry Wine" tunic thank to Rit Dye in Wine 10 over some Scarlet dyed Kona cotton.

Cloth Works updates

Greetings All,
I have had the dye pot on for 2 days with Rit powder dye in Aubergine 33 and here are my results and some of which I am happy with and others not so sure.

Aubergine over Lemon and this I am loving.

 Two  yards of Kona cotton that was shibori folded and overdyed and I am loving this the most.

My final piece for now is 2 yards of Kona cotton dyed in scarlet and then overdyed in Aubergine and I am not happy.  So I go back to the dye pot on this one.
