Day of Discharging
I've started a new group locally in which we're going to meet every first Friday of the month and work on different surface design techniques. There will be 3-5 of us. This first time, we had three and we had a blast. We worked on discharging with various bleach products. I have done this before but not much. The piece above is a hand dyed fabric that I then stenciled some Soft Scrub through a square stencil. I did four squares but didn't get enough bleach in two of them.
I am really excited about the new group. The two people who are in it so far are both wonderful fiber artists. I took a piece that I have been working on for ages and got a wonderful idea on how to finish it. I haven't ever shown this piece on the blog because I thought I might enter it into a show. Now that I have an idea for finishing it, it's much more likely to happen instead of just languishing around the house. Next month, we are going to marble scarves. I've never done marbling before and I'm really looking forward to it. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
