Preparing the fabric.



I purchased 5 yards of cheese cloth…. $1.99 metre.

I cut strips…. 6" wide and dyed them with pigment ink.  I used all purpose inks by Tsukineko.

Even though I had a pinny on I managed to color my orange T-shirt.

I splattered the ink all over my shoes and had to wash them too. Oh, and the nail varnish didn't fare too well either.

The colors are delicious and I had a wonderful time photographing them. The strips hung like sentries on the line.

    Now I’m “dying” to see how you use this. Beautiful color

    Pam, the colors are making my mouth water. Any tips on how you dyed the fabric? Just the normal thing of dunking in a small bowl w/water? Do you set it with heat? I’ve used the inks since taking your class, but I do need your expert advice. Thanks.

    Liz…no it’s not hard really… I didn’t need to set the ink it’s permanent.. it was a little lighter when it dried though.
    email me with your query about the inks….
