Dye Resist Experiments — Double Diagonal Clamping

November 22, 2008

Another double dyed fabric, this time using clamps both times.  This one was folded in squares, clamped diagonally with a pair of ceramic tiles, and dyed fuchsia.  Then I repeated the dyeing, angling the tiles the other way and using cobalt dye.  One tile cracked as I was setting the clamps, which I think caused the line through the white areas at the bottom This has some really cool potential! (As soon as I find something less brittle than ceramic tiles to clamp with…)
