This week I finally found a place that sells Rit liquid dye, as my inktense blocks are taking a serious hammering from colouring large blocks of fabric and as I'm not actually that keen on playing with dye powder, the liquid is the way forward. Add to that that is stable because it is already in solution. Dylon will keep for 2-3 weeks in solution but I probably wont be doing that much with it.
Then last night I was organising my music while having a well deserved beer, when I bumped the beer and it tipped all over my laptop keyboard.. after mopping up and holding the keyboard upside down for several minutes I thought all was good.. But then this morning when I was looking for info on the liquid dye, I discovered that my keyboard had a bit of a hang over from the beer it suck up last night and was doing some very random and creative things.. luckily the rest of the computer seems to be unscathed at this point.
So a quick trip to office works for a $10 keyboard with no plans to buy anything else I came out with artline pastel coloured markers, a metal ruler and another set of brushes (I am so weak in the face of art supplies....)
I also bought myself a sewing machine, which will come in handy for making cushions and things from all this material I've been banging out.
Here are this weeks pieces:
|Guinea Pigs and Rabbits cushion fronts|
|Cat fabric after printing|
|Cat fabric during painting|
