Big sigh! Â Today was the first day of Marbling in almost a year. Â A bitÂ shaky at first, then muscle memory took over. Â Happy Dance is in order.
I chose SunÂ as the first color this yearÂ because it makes me happy.
You will be able to view the different designs on my website in about sixteen days. Â Why so long? Â 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. Â I have just over 200 pieces dyed, now the ironing begins. Â It takes a while. Â I watch DVD’s whileÂ ironing, stocked up at the library beforeÂ all of the new snow arrived. Â Hope to have new pieces on my website soon.Â
I am playing with color mixing. Ocean is the latest mix. Teal and Purple. Both colors are my own mix. Â The color variation it produces is amazing. Â I have some other ideas up my sleeve. Yes, you can find it on my website www.marbled-arts.com Â I also have dyed some my Cotton Scarves. Â I think I will have a hard time letting them go.
Swamp is fabric I created.Â First it was Snow Dyed then I chose to Over Dye it.Â I gave it the name Swamp, for the dark mystery, the feel of vegetation and light.Â I’m beginning to see trees grow and take shape.Â It has been hanging in my studio for about a month.Â The idea is brewing in my head.Â I hope to show you the progress as I work on it.Â I need some thread and perhaps some hand dyed organza.Â Wish me luck.
