Second fabric dyeing day
Kathy and Peggy are making browns from 3 primary colors. I had my husband cut 4 inch wide PVC into comfortable lengths and we scrunched the fabric on to the pipe, with rubber bands, painting on all colors and experimenting with the browns and mixes. I also had some rusts all mixed.. You should be very careful and read the instructions for Procion or any dyes very carefully, and follow all the precautionary instructions.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
