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.

No thickeners of any kind were used with the dye. This piece also appears in the first photo next to the colander. And here’s a picture of it after heat-pressing, washing out and ironing:
The color shift is awesome, huh? And a detail from the top edge, left of center:
I like it – it’s fairly subtle patterning, but so not-solid. What do you think? Thanks.

Here are two quick pictures of my little swatch and the colander that made the marks:
The large piece in the upper picture is an experiment that is still in process. I will post pictures when it’s done. Thanks for looking!
I’m trying a new-to-me show with ‘The Original Creative Festival’ in Cincinnati. I’ll be in booth 106, as of this writing, and I am going to be introducing some new fabrics for garment sewers, as well as my snow-dyed and discharged fabrics, polyesters and wool roving. And I will be teaching ‘Dye Boot Camp’ again – come and join the fun!
