Buying.

Items indicated "Sold" can be ordered. Can even be ordered in different colors. Because of the "handmade" nature of this kind of work, no two items will be "exactly identical". They will be like loaves of homemade bread made from the same dough.

About Me

My Photo
From the beginning I loved textiles. As a child my mother dressed me in beautiful garments and as a young person Kismet was my favorite movie. The heroine danced in the bazaar flinging beautiful fabric.

How to Purchase

Because dye is difficult to control all orders are unique. If not already sold you may purchase the original. If already sold you can still purchase the "same" piece. Your order will be a new piece approximating the original as closely as possible (or with any differences you may request . . . perhaps you would prefer different colors). Clothing is available in S/M/L. Custom sizes are available. Money orders are preferred. Checks are acceptable and items will be shipped once they have cleared. Shipping and handling will be charged to the customer.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

BREAKDOWN PRINTING OR DECONSTRUCTED PRINTING

I have stumbled across some "new" techniques and rambled carelessly through several books (Kerr Grabowski, Claire Benn, Leslie Morgan, Jane Dunnewold to name a few of the most helpful authors). Of modest means I tend to check them out of the library or borrow them; I did manage to purchase a couple of downloads from Interweave Press (Dunnewold & Grabowski) and they are a good kickstart. I love the "design" that emerges from manipulating dye in this way. I haven't used textile paint very munch because I'm not fond of a cloth with anything laying on the surface rather than being intrinsically a part of it; also the gel medium required to adhere the textile paint to the cloth's surface sold locally is in tiny little bottles for ridiculous prices. I would want to use gallons of the stuff and, alas, shipping gallons of stuff is expensive. Soooooo. Anyway, here are a few images of some breakdown printing using procion dyes!
