Experimented with the glue resist again. Each of the pieces above is approximately 18″x26″; the one in the middle had dye applied once, the one on top and the one on the bottom have been dyed twice. The one on the bottom is silk/rayon velvet, so the colors look richer; otherwise, the fabric is cotton.
I have some different ideas for these designs. One involves couching the prickly pear cactus shapes in dyed yarn. I’d like to layer these pieces so they flow into one another. We’ll see; conceptualizing is always easy, problem-solving a way to bring the idea into reality is another matter entirely!
