Newest Creation

I believe I have hit upon a technique that I really like and what it produces. I dyed the fabric blue orginally the one that was uploaded Sunday. Then I took the blue since I didn't like the results and redyed purple over the blue using some rubber bands in various places around the bunched up material and this is what I got. I called it purple N blue really original isn't it. But that was all my tired brain could come up with tonight.
I like the effect. I got my paycheck today and when out and bought some more dyes in colors I didn't have yet. I am thinking of using the purple again as the base color and spritzing yellow over it. But this time I am using tape to get a broader band which will remain white and allow the yellow spritz to color those areas. Sort of like Easter Colors I believe. I want to experiment with greens too. I bought a leaf green tonight and I already have Kelly green mixed up so I thought I would do something with those two colors. I love the double dyeing technique above the original dyeing.
