Back in 2009, I did purchase some disperse powder dyes from Prochem and played. My results were so..so and too crafty looking for me but I had fun playing. Around that same time I did purchase Linda's book 'Color Moves' and played some more! Again...ok results but nothing earth shattering...just fun playing.
When I saw Linda's video on using the transfer dyes yesterday I couldn't wait to play again today! Only problem was I didn't think I had any poly fabric...so before going to the Farmer's Market this a.m. I headed off to JoAnn Fabrics to buy some fabric. They only had pink in the 65% poly/35cotton but that was fine.
When I got home, I painted some more papers in reds and blues (using the leftover mixed up dyes from 2009!). Waiting for the papers to dry I checked in my dyeing fabric bin and found some white poly/cotton fabric from 2009 and guess what else I found! THESE!
Anyway, I digress...Check out the label! 65% poly and 35% cotton! So......
Next, I took the pink poly fabric I bought today and played with transferring on it.
The greens are really more vibrant than what shows in the picture and the yellow is lovely.
This is a closeup...looks so like crystals doesn't it!
This piece is about 40" long and about 14" wide. I think it will make a great table runner.
Well, I think I'll go scout my hubby's drawers to see what else I can find!! You just never know!!! I just hope there's more poly/cotton fabric!! Just hope he's watching golf and doesn't notice me taking clothes from his drawers!
