Some really "interesting" dyeing experiments.
I was so excited the other day, on one of our walks, that l had found this rusty piece of scaffolding equipment lying on the side of the road.....Tony just "sighed" ha! But look what it produced when silk is wrapped around it and steamed for 1 hour!!!!
Isn't it amazing?...even Tony was impressed! Ha!
Yeh...actual "leaf" pattern...Tony will be pleased. He "likes" my patterns but is always asking "why can't l see the leaves?".
Think this will make him happy!
Who would have thought paper clips could make such a pattern!
The way the elastic bands have left their mark on the silk reminds me of leather.
This pattern reminds me of the skin of a giraffe!
More bundles to unwrap tomorrow..l am so loving this!
