Done the eco dye on a habotai fabric intended to get the leaves print. How come it looks like this? Total out of my expectation - terrible. Got to learn from error.
這件絲質料是用植物印染, 本意想要有明顯的葉紋效果, 誰知一團糟, 太深色, 好似玳瑁色, 可能是布料不洽當曾浸在鹽水? 還得要再做實驗.
Thought fabric soaked in sea water for mordant would get nice effect. Instead I soaked my white habotai fabric in salt-solved water, bundled around the iron cans and boiled for an hour in the dye pot with eucalyptus leaves and barks. Challenged my patience to wait for some 10 days to unbundle.......
OMG, very disappointed, only a few marks of leave. Most part is dark with can marks and brown of euc dye pot.
Not my cup of tea.
Mogi, "Mum, what's that?"
"Mum, smell of euc is good and the white string mark seems not that bad."
"Mum always plays tricks on me and challenges my patience"
"Well, I'm always a good guy to demo"
Daunting at times but learning from errors and trials is way to success. Well. this weekend will do some more euc prints experiments on silk fabrics and wool felt scarf for my upcoming class. Better to keep this in stash for sometime.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice weekend.
