Clamping and dyeing

While cleaning up my studio yesterday  I found these pieces that I forgot to blog about!


For this dyeing experiment, I wanted to use a couple different kinds of resist objects. Here is a light switch cover.

This is a pretty piece but way too light and not a lot of texture. The rubber bands just couldn’t hold it tight enough. I’ll be using the clamps next time.


Plexiglass wrapped with rubber bands.



And the last piece also with plexiglass.



This was a fun experiment. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are having a wonderful, creative Sunday.
