Adding Layers, wonderful layers!

second layer of snow bleaching


I have always enjoyed dyeing fabric and the beautiful results.  They always feel done to me.  Now I’m pushing myself to see what more I can do to them.  I’m really enjoying the depth of the layers and complexity of adding more and more.  Here are some layered fabrics that are still not done.  How do you know when enough is enough and more is just more?   So far I haven’t hit the wall of too much yet.

I did a second snow bleaching with the tiny bit of snow we got a couple of weeks ago.  Now we are in the 80s.  Go figure.  Glad I scooped it up!  The piece below has decolored thermofax screenprinting of hail.

Below is one I’m really enjoying and can’t wait to show you the next layer.  This one is on layer 4.  First light blue mottle dyed, second and third thermofaxed screens with thickened dye.  Fourth layer was thermofaxed screened corn syrup as a resist and then overdyed in a medium blue.   Can’t wait for studio time tomorrow!

Four layers and counting!

And here is another parfait which had yellow on the bottom, red in the middle and blue on top.

  1. These all look great Barbara! I love what you do with your fabrics! I can see them in so many projects – journal making, purse making, wall art…so many possibilities! And that parfait is just amazing! 🙂

      Thanks, Sonja! I am having so much fun finally crossing some techniques off of my to do list and getting them in my repertoire. I can’t wait to get using some of them in some art!
