See this fabric? It's a collaboration. A friend of mine, who shall be nameless, sent me a pale yellow-green piece onto which she had stamped wax. I threw it into a turq dyebath for about 2 seconds and took it out again. Underwhelmed by my quickie dye job, I decided to slather it in wax and keep going with it. Here it is.
Next, I painted on some dark dye I had at hand: blue or purple or some such color.
Then, the best part: I ironed, wrapped it in newspaper and steamed for 20 min. Here is what it looks like now. I've munched on a few pita chip crumbs, a few pieces of brie, and have finished unwinding. Off to bed.
