hand-dyed fabrics

squeeze-bottle squiggle

24" x 20"

The title pretty much says it all:

I squeezed thickened orange dye out of a small plastic bottle onto cloth that had been laid on my dye-table.  After it was dry, I did an ombre of various yellows on top of the pattern that was already there.  Different effects happen if the cloth is wet or dry when the squiggling takes place, and you can do things in the reverse order too, making the doodles on top of previously-dyed cloth.  Lots of fun!
