Spring Bomaki

Spring is here! And so is spring colored bomaki. Purples, light blues, light greens, and a deep pink. Made me think of easter, it was a lot of fun to work with and I'm glad I have 6 yards of it. It did take two rounds on the pole to get it just so, but well worth the extra work.

Discharged Batik

This is the same purchased finished fabric that the "starry batik" is on. This piece however, I did using the bomaki method. I really like it. It reminds me of water at night.

Discharged Batik - Starry Batik

This is another piece of purchased finished fabric which I then discharged using screen printing. I think it is fun. I don't know that I would want a lot of it, but I like the small 9x12 size that I created.

Discharged Batik

This was a purchased prepared finished piece of fabric that was in the batik style that I gathered up and wrapped in spiderweb style all different sizes all over the fabric then discharged. It came out very different than the original which was a dark purple and orange batik with teal accents. It was a good experiment!
