this is super amazing. your dye consistency looks really thick for the paint. what do you use? just sodium alginate? I LOVE the colors on this but I have such a hard time getting mine to that sort of intensity, even though I follow the jacquard recipes.

thanks!

i didnt use alginate- i just concentrate my dye by adding an extra heaping teaspoon to the dye cups.

hemp fabric dyes AMAZING- it really takes dye well ... probably my most favorite fiber to dye right  next to silk velvet....

I'm working on a new piece with the last of my hemp rayon right now-
its gonna be mega big and much more intricate than this one Wink

Wow, that's so awesome.  I love batik, I think it's such a pretty art.  I did it once many years ago, and I've always wanted to do more.

But this is so amazing, it just glows.
