Painted & Dyed

I think I'm getting there....not quite sure where there is but it's a fantabulous explorative journey. I'm sure some of you already know this but I didn't and I stumbled on this technique in one of those oh-what-the-heck-let-me-try-it-moments.....painting the fabric first and then dyeing it creates great texture and saturated coloring. I'm having great fun.

The pieces of fabric look lovely Denise.....The paint must act as a resist, so does the dye settle in areas not painted?

Cheers, Cynthia in France

Yes, it does Cynthia and also can get underneath the colors a bit because I scratch, rub, manipulate and mangle the painted cloth (on purpose).

oh, I LOVE the look of it. I wish I could touch it. I love using that technique in painting - scratching, rubbing, sanding, etc.
