Landscape dyes on silk

December 29, 2013

More experimentation has produced these results.

I must say I love the vibrancy of Landscape Dyes on silk.   Colour management is achieved quite easily and mixing chroma’s produces such interesting colours and visual texture.

With the coming of warmer weather making it attractive to work in my wet-room (under the house where it is cooler) I will be continuing to experiment with these dyes.

Christmas time

Christmas CatChristmas gave me the motivation to make a few fabric art cards to give away.  A cat lover friend scored this one!

Relaxing with Postcards

On a hot day there is nothing more I enjoy than playing around with all my dyed lace, mixed media, and gorgeous beaded fabrics – to make fabric art cards.

More are coming, and as you may have guessed, they have a Christmas theme.

Maybe tomorrow I can get them finished!

Splashing around with Landscape dyes

My silk scarves have been popular amongst my friends and arty colleagues.

Here is a sample of my latest creations.

I have a few new ideas to try out – all during the Christmas holidays when life will be quieter, I hope.

I want to combine some techniques…ideas are batching inside my head … so either a success or a learning experience lies ahead.
