hi im a new member of the site. just joined.
as i have recently graduated from a printed textile degree its gr8 to find people to talk to that enjoy the same things as myself, and i wish i had found this site when i was at uni!!
i have used lots of dying methods, some natural and some not. my fav is indigo dying, and resist methods. the intense depth of colour u can get from the indigo is fantastic. combining the indigo with procion MX dyes works really well. i.e dying the cloth first with a bright colour like scarlet MX and then scrunching it into a ball and wrapping it tightly with thread then dipping it into the indigo a few times, its so exciting when u come to unwrapping it to reveal what u have created.
right im going to try and post this comment now so wish me luck...
