This is the last experiment from my first dye batch.
Here the shibori is being shrouded by layers of cotton gauze, interesting but not quite working the way I envisioned. It is really hard to see but each of the strips is 3 layers; plain shibori, covered halfway with one strip of gauze which in turn is covered halfway with another strip of gauze.
I was hoping for a gradual erasure of the shibori. The effect is not happening for quite a few reasons, color, contrast or lack of it, and the weave itself is distracting from what I'm interested in seeing.
I dyed up another small batch of fabrics to play with tonight and I may be able to take another whack at it tomorrow.
