I am working on scarves AGAIN…I have an opportunity to sell tomorrow night as well as deliver some for consignment on Saturday, so gotta get ’em done. Since my Deep Black 609 did not work very well (too red), my scarves are mostly a deep red-purple color. I decided to discharge on some of them because they are so dark (some people may like the dark color). Not very long ago I had decided that I would no longer work with discharge paste simply because I cannot abide the odor of it…but after today I guess I’m changing my mind…can you see why?
I stamped the paste on with a sea sponge. What a difference that made. This is a 15″ x 60″ silk crepe de chine (remember it shrinks from that in washing, now measuring about 14.5″ x 56″). For sale for $30 (includes shipping). Email me if you are interested. I am also doing some rust dyeing on a silk scarf and cotton scarves. Stay tuned.
