Painting & Dying

After the record breaking longest winter, we are warming up nicely. I am quite sunburned from playing on the deck all weekend. Yesterday I painted with Dynaflow (& sun-printed with Elderberry leaves-they were easy to pick from the deck).
The first print was just plain black paint.

The next is the before & after on the same piece.
The next 2 are over painted on a fabric I dyed last year & didn't like. The first (below) I over painted with purple.

This next one I over painted from the same fabric, with Brass.

The original fabric is hanging behind, on the line below, & the 2 pieces are the same 2 as above, after the over painting & sun printing. The leaves are subtle on those 2 because of the busy dye job.

 Today I straw-dyed (although I'm thinking I should call it "Dry Dyed") all the left over s from the day before.
The fabric in the tub is 4 curtain panels that I will use on the windows in my Dye Studio when I can use it.

Now to go shower of the sweat! This Alaska girl isn't used to this heat any more! I'm Not complaining though! just's hot! :~D

I hear ya, I'm not used to this much warm weather in a shot. Not complaining yet. Though I did get a little to much sun today :)
