Big sigh! Today was the first day of Marbling in almost a year. A bit shaky at first, then muscle memory took over. Happy Dance is in order.
I chose Sun as the first color this year because it makes me happy.
You will be able to view the different designs on my website in about sixteen days. Why so long? The fabric must cure for two weeks, wash, dry and iron, followed by scanning, watermarking, edit and adding to site.
Been using all of that wonderful snow to dye fabric. I have just over 200 pieces dyed, now the ironing begins. It takes a while. I watch DVD’s while ironing, stocked up at the library before all of the new snow arrived. Hope to have new pieces on my website soon.
I am playing with color mixing. Ocean is the latest mix. Teal and Purple. Both colors are my own mix. The color variation it produces is amazing. I have some other ideas up my sleeve. Yes, you can find it on my website www.marbled-arts.com I also have dyed some my Cotton Scarves. I think I will have a hard time letting them go.
Fall is officially here, that makes me think of a mug of Hot Chocolate. Now I am not talking about Milk Chocolate, but rich Dark Chocolate. Luscious, yummy really Dark Chocolate in the Waved Icarus Design.
Keep having to look up fabric measurements? Created this handy Yardage Chart!
It all starts with PFD fabric, glass marbled, rubber bands and a good movie.
After time in the dye buckets, a couple of rinses, the marbled and rubber bands must come out. My hands turn interesting colors, but wears off in a few days.
Navy Blue Rayon Top.
One Half of the three yard piece of Blue/Green.
Detail of Blue/Green
One Half of the three yard piece of Violet/Turquoise.
Silk Scarf. Silk is a bit of a challenge to work with.
Playing with Dye and things – What more can I say. Having to be off of my ankle is leaving me with idle hands. So a few experiments are in the works. The fabric is actually a deep dark purple, bad lighting.
