Texture and Dirt

Colour Project – Brown, Part 12

Above is a print taken from a lovely textured piece of bark. It was quite uneven so I used a roller to apply ink directly to the bark, then placed the fabric on top to print. Below the seed pods were inked individually then stamp printed onto the fabric. Both fabrics were dyed earlier in the month, top is head cloth, below is the cotton nightie.

Above – 3 weights of cotton “rubbed” with red dirt given to me by a friend, collected near a rather large rock in Australia…I left the dirt to dry on the fabric overnight, then washed it out well with soapy water. It has not changed the hand of the fabric, although I’m not sure how colour fast this method is.
