seaweed




Mixed up a nice bronze/green and screened back into the discharged piece using the same circle screen. Followed that with a deeper blue using the tree bark screen. Will finish by drawing darker circles.

soda ash surprise


My first day as a blogger. I forgot a piece of discharged chiffon that I was soaking in soda ash. It stayed in the soak overnight and this morning it had a warm pale coral that hadn't been there prior to the soak. This piece was was discharged 2x, first with Jaquard paste... then steamed but not enough discharged. Next I printed it again this time with Thiox paste and steamed while the paste was still quite wet... and I lost almost everything. I feel a bit like Goldilocks. Now I am going to dye it again using the same screen I used to discharge it.
