I just tried a new (for me) pattern today, and thought I would share it with you:
I dampened a women's tank top and vertically accordion folded it. Then I bound it with sinew
Next, I placed it in a plastic bin and poured dye over it
I let it sit in the dye for an hour, then poured over soda ash solution, continuing to let it sit for another hour. Then I untied and laundered in Synthrapol. Here is the result:
I plan to work on my technique some... I want less undyed area and a more distinct marking from the binding. I'll post more pictures as I go along.
