view from the pole- all wrapped up, ready to push. this fabric was sent to me all the way from Norway from
Emily who dreamt of seeing this spotted vintage kimono silk lining as shibori.
I base dyed it on a pink passion afternoon, folded it and wrapped it onto the pole for discharge.
overdyed it with a strong mix of blues and sent it to the steamer. It was dark by then as it had been a full day of
wrapping discharging and dyeing – a glass of wine in hand at days end I sat back and watched the steam
take shape against the dark. Emily is part of the Pay it Forward group.
a recent ProChem purchase- love this little digital scale and handy reusable plastic
measuring trays. I had been using my beat up Ohaus triple balance scale that I’ve had for
30 years- beat up from daily use measuring ceramic colorants for clays and glazes.
my primitive set up for over dyeing /over painting poles.
