I spent the morning digging about in the studio, checking over inventory and putting up some new offering of hand dyes over in the shop. Even though winter's chill is back in Georgia, dye days will be on me before I know it -
the tree frogs said so.
I'm finally sharing some of the proceeds from last seasons adventures in going crazy with color.
I know that natural dyeing is all the trend and the delicacy and subtlety of the work is beautiful, but for me, I crave intensity in every direction so I flagrantly overdose my cloth with Procion MX..(.the good folks at ProChem bless me each night, I'm sure) and there will be more adventures with soywax as both resist and carrier. There will be discharging and overdyeing and painting..things that have not yet occurred to me, stuff I dream about and wake to try the next day as the mood moves me.
