First Day of Marbling!

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.

Snow Wonderland

Miss Molly loves snow and if you think she is patiently waiting, we have already been for our walk and sh want to go again.  We were without power last night, read books, went to bed and woke up to power and snow.
I love how snow adds depth and dimension to everything.  Filled up the birdfeeder, like to keep our feathered friends happy in the snow.
Amazing how the flakes stick to just about everything.
Yes, this means I will be snow dying today!

Playing with Color Mixing

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.ocean_darkocean

Experiment Continue!

StartIt all starts with PFD fabric, glass marbled, rubber bands and a good movie.

UndoAfter 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.
