Messy Painted Aprons....P2P Class

The Permission 2 Play class is creating

Messy Painted Aprons

The students begin with blank canvas aprons...

They rolled on a layer of acrylic craft paint.

then stamped several more layers of paint...

Every student painted on every apron...

Adding detail with Sharpie Paint Markers...

The students did not know which apron 

would be theirs

until the end of class...

When all of the 5 layers of painting 

and stamping is complete,

the aprons are turned over to the back side...

Without seeing the front side of the apron,

each student chooses their own apron.

No matter which apron you choose...

they are all beautiful and FUN to wear!

They are just as much FUN to create

as they are to wear!

It is so relaxing to sit and draw

the detail work with the paint pens...

Many Thanks to Kathi, Lani, Karri and Debbie

for standing in to lead this class in my absence.

Indigo Dyeing.....Play Day

The Art Sisters are here for a day of PLAY

We are Indigo Dyeing

We are using the Jacquard Indigo Dye Kit

Indigo Dyed Fabrics

Yellow Bucket: Clamped fabrics soaked in water

White Bucket:  Indigo Dye Vat

Red Basket:  Indigo Dyed Fabrics oxygenating

When the fabrics are removed from the dye vat,

the oxygen turns them from 

green to....blue

Kathi is dyeing a shibori wrapped piece

on a large pvc pipe...

Kathi's fabrics....turning blue

Kathi also wrapped fabric on a vent...

The center fabric is a shibori wrapped and dyed piece.

We had a yard full of FUN!

Tongs work great to remove the fabrics

from the Indigo Dye vat

Nancy is holding her fabric under the dye...

the fabrics tend to float!

Beth removes her shibori piece from the vat...

notice it is green.

The fabrics come out green,

then turn blue when exposed to oxygen.

Beth rinses her Indigo dyed shirt

Kathi rinses her clamped fabric...

Popsicle sticks clamped on triangle folded fabric,

created this pattern.

Fabric wrapped around wiffle balls...

Wiffle Ball Indigo Dyed Fabric

Kathi over-dyed this screen printed bird

in the indigo vat.

The dyed fabrics really piled up

as the day went on...

I am meeting up with the Art Sisters this week

for a show 'n tell of our Indigo Dyed Fabrics...
