Dye Resist Experiments — Spider Binding

This is a really traditional shibori design — pinch a bit of fabric and wrap it with thread.  The bound fabric looks rather alien:

I did two pieces of this, one pre-soaked in soda ash and one not.

With soda:

Without:

Not a great deal of difference in detail.

With the green one, I was hoping to mimic some fabric I saw in a picture with was all texture — it’s going to take some practice to figure out how to get the binding closer together without losing any fingers…I wonder if taking some “spikes” to the other side of the fabric would help?
