Dye Resist Experiments — Triangle Clamp

This is a totally classic itajime technique, although I don’t think the Japanese used ceramic tiles:

This fabric was also dipped in a soda solution before clamping.  I dipped the bundle into dye and left it sitting with the point in the dye.  Note to self, a) ceramic tiles are too brittle to handle clamps and b) think about how to rest the bundle in the dye before placing the clamp.

I love the results!  I want to figure out how to dye tshirt knit this way, but the number of layers seems too large to manage.  I’ll have to keep working on it.
