Rust Dyeing with Tea and Other Things!

Today at Dyeing to Paint we dipped silk scarves wrapped around rusty things in tea bags – some Earl Grey no less – and waited with baited breath to see what the effect might be. More on that next month!

And then it was back to the print and paint

Monica had made some cards from book pages that had been stencilled and there was an idea that we could make some to sell at the exhibtion in September. So……Rosie and Monica were busy printing and stamping little robins

And then there was the suggestion that sea themed cards would work well so there was experimentation with the sea stencils. Liz created some lovely images and Monica tried paint and stencils on organza – which gave a lovely shimmering effect

Meanwhile Caroline was creating some wonderful Welsh dragons on bags – destined for the country market in Cowbridge

Janet was busy creating some lovely fabric with print blocks

as was Fiona

Keris’ leaf fabric looks amazing

And Monica was overdyeing some fabric that she had previously printed

Just another fab day at Dyeing to Paint with great expectations for the tea dyeing – watch this space!
