Making these was much like making pizza. The scarves were soaked in soda ash solution, wrung out and then, one at a time, the color kneaded in; more kneading, less color definition. Pop it into a baggie and let it rest overnight before the wash and rinse. The hardest part was not repeating myself colorwise. I never failed to make the cost of my table before lunch on day one anytime I brought these to a fair.
That's my first dye partner, Jan Thompson in our art fair set up at the Norcross Art Fest. It was a perfect vendors weekend. Hot product, great weather and they put us in front of a great Italian restaurant.
I was spoiled rotten.
Jan has since moved on to glass art and you know what I've been up to.
Every year when it turns cold (as it did with a vengeance last night) I pull my two survivors out of the closet and wear them all winter long. Everyone else sits at a traffic light and fidgets with their phone (which will still get you a ticket here in GA, btw), I braid my fringe.
