Cutting off a piece from yesterday’s (blogged) felt, this was then applied with more shibori resists and plunged into a second dyebath. This added a further colour dimension to the previous golden yellow (as shown on yesterday’s entry).
Another exciting result, eh?
Refolded, ready for second dye-bath.
Second piece of felt applied with resists and dyed in a dye-bath.
With another dye colour added, this is the result.

My internet wanderings led me to the enchanting work by Mary Stori; also Chad Alice Hagen.
See more of their work on http://www.marystori.blogspot.com; www.chadalicehagen.com
I am fascinated by brooches created with felted wool and shibori techniques.
If either of these gifted ladies were teaching in Australia I would move heaven and earth to get there.
But alas, I am not so lucky……but lucky enough to jump in and have a go. This is my first result. More to come!
- Felted background ready for dyeing.
- Shibori technique of folded felt, ready to be dyed.
The result from the first dyebath.

My love affair with dyes and silk continues. I just love the way colour is transported serendipitiously to the folds in silk fabric. Also allowing the dye colours to travel to form abstract shapes. Anything that moves away from realism attracts my hand and eye. A small sample is shown.
