Food Fun

Today I tried natural dye stuff with Arashi Shibori - some rose petals, raspberry tea and onion skins. I kept seeing food in the results, too - ripple potato chips:and the icing swirls on top of a vanilla slice - must have been time for a snack!
Here's the whole, which was a light beige to begin with.
And I did a little Sekka Shibori using the Colourhue dyes.

the sekka looks like crystals. i love it.
even though dyeing with the natural stuff didn't penetrate, i still like it. i only plan on doing small pieces so these results are very satisfying to me. i do love the arashi technique. and i do not have what it takes to let the piece dry. too anxious to see the results.

Oh, Yvonne I simply love your moha icing!

Deanna, I like small pieces, too because then I try alot of different things and learn from that. If I decide to make something larger, I can then use what I've learned to do it. My dyed pieces will end up in my work little by little.

Thanks, Jude - I imagined you will be!

Penny - in this form it's better for me, too :)
