I tried this one with four colors and two plys of fabric, so I now have two pieces that look like this. I've already cut into this for a new quilt project, what a TREAT!
And also some blue/purples to go along. These are much more nuanced colors than my early procion work. I had an art school professor that would tell us that an artist shouldn't use a color straight out of the tube, "Make it your own!" He would have been talking of oils or acrylics but it applies to procion dyes. Of course I'm not going to mix every single color just because an old professor said I must, but I respect the opinion that colors should be "owned." Sometimes they just don't need tweaking, and I'm running out of some of my favorite colors in the early batches, so I'll be back into this again soon enough.
Soon I'll be sharing photos of my new quilt project. I'm past the most intense part of Christmas production and ready for winter activities like cooking and keeping a fire in the wood stove and sewing. Oh, and I was given another old Singer sewing machine today, this one doesn't have a presser foot and I haven't gotten it to work properly yet. I'm up to four old sewing machines now, just hoping Studio B doesn't become a home for tired old Singers... though maybe if I keep them upstairs with the piano then we'll all be happy. =)
Thanks for dropping by my blog!
With love from a tired old singer, sewer, and dyer,
