Textile dying experiments
It has been a busy time
trying out new colors and techniques
just using books or internet
toward the dream to create
my own textile backgrounds
for my artwork..
stretching habotai silk
measuring an all that precision stuff
creating colors charts
And putting them on canvas
At the moment I'm not sure if it could work at all
I've been investigating for years
about natural dyeing, screen printing and other related crafts
This Procion Mx, chemical dyes which can color natural fibers
seem to me to create to much pollution to the water...
so i feel to use it rarely .
I am trying now disperse dyes, always chemical,
but which do not require water.
The color is transferred by heat.
I of course do not abandon the idea
of using already made beautiful brocades and so on,
as I've been doing for few years now!
