Parfait dyeing

In the book Color by accident by Ann Johnston, she describes a process of layering fabric and dyes to create gradations of colour. Instead of using 3 separate pieces of fabric, I folded a one and a half metre length of cotton.

The result is on piece with three colours and more. Unexpected and unusual colour combinations occur. I never plan my dyeing sessions scientifically and don’t expect to recreate the same design again.

I like the spontaneity of combining leftover dyes and seeing the results.

I am still ironing the rest of the cotton fabric that I dyed. More photos will be coming soon, if the ironing fairy comes to visit!
