And now for some thichened dye experiments

I have been gone for sooooo long!  I loved every minute of my print class but I am also so happy that it is over for now!  Karen Adrienne, my instructor, promises that she will have an advanced print class in Spring in the evening when I can attend.  I am looking forward to it.  But till then I have all summer and fall to play with my surface designs and art quilts!  Yeah!

Beth and I got together on Friday and played with thickened dye.  The pictures of the monoprints are posted here on the Fire Blog.  But we did so much more than monoprinting!  We put the thickened dye into needle-nosed bottles and used it to draw lines and scribbles and writing.  Here are the process pictures.

And the washed, dried, and ironed finished piece with a detail shot.
