A textile artist friend from the Blue Mountains visited me which prompted a brief “show & tell” about Polysol dyes. This then prompted me to organise myself and see what type of images emerged from this process.
Here are a few photos showing use of crayons as a resist, different ways of applying the dyes to paper, and various overlays on fabric during transfer of heat. I use an ironing press – much faster than ironing and easier on the arms.
I am curious about the different ways there may be, to achieve good imagery and texture. If you have any ideas I would love to read your comments. This adventure is to continue….I am sure you will hear more from me.
