I am still sailing

Last day before half term, and a chance to print up the sails at twice the size, with the Procion P dyes, using more complex mixes of colours. I also wanted to see if it was possible to get an ombre effect with the dyes.

Sails detail, showing some success with the ombre at the far left, although also showing some inconsistent application of the dye paste, making it a bit streaky, particularly in the blue. This is a much finer cotton poplin, and also had an interesting watermark effect left once the dye had dried.

Full length, one direction

Full length, from opposite direction

I love this technique.

Then off to Prism for a meet-up with Morley friends from last year. Well worth the trip if you can make it there by Sunday.


  1. Wot Plum said! LOL. Are you going to make omething with this?


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
