Dying On the Porch

Now that I have the resist threads pulled and secured on this Crackle Woven Shibori Experiment, it's time to do some dying. Here I have fuchsia and gunmetal gray and my trusty foam brush.

I will paint the colors on with the foam brush. I paint on one side, then turn over and do the other side. Hopefully I have pulled my resist threads tight enough to have some areas of "resist"!!

I will have to let it 'batch' for several hours. Some say overnight. But usually I do try to wait  half a day! Then I will need to rinse, and allow to dry COMPLETLY. If it's not dry, you will have trouble pulling out the resist threads.
