Quick picture of discharged shibori

P3200025

This is a piece of Testfabrics black broadcloth that I discharged with Thiox and over-dyed with MX. It was folded in half and wrapped around a pipe, then bound with thread. I’d love to do this again with a really sheer fabric.

What an interesting idea to come up with! I have some kona black and might give this a try.

Thanks, Laura - can't take any credit for the idea. In May of 2010 I have a post showing discharge on Kona; it was done with bleach.
