Experiments on a frigid day

The temperatures have dropped here. The first really cold weather we have had all year. Fortunately my studio is a warm spot for dribbling dye over cloth. In this case, a yard of silk hemp, folded and scrunched. 

My favorite part of dyeing is the rinsing. That's when you get a sense of how the dye has moved through the cloth and left its mark.

You really have to give up a sense of control when you are dyeing this way. It is what it is. And it is beautiful.
