The Art Sisters are playing with
We are using found objects to make our marks
We use sodium alginate to create
thickened print paste
sodium alginate is ground up seaweed
we are using fiber reactive dye...Raven Black
100% cotton fabric
The dye powder and soda ash
are mixed directly into
the thickened paste
Once mixed together, we have a 4 hour window
until the dye is exhausted
After each cloth was completed,
it was covered with plastic for batching
We had great FUN making our marks!
We plan to cut up our newly created fabrics
and incorporate them into quilted projects.
For our last canvas,
we put strings and threads
down on the print board:
All sizes of threads and cords...
then we placed the cotton fabric over the top...
of the strings.
We used large wall paper brushes to rub dye
over the top of the strings:
Our mark making evolved as the day went on!
