I promise I have been working even though I haven't posted. My process does take a lot of time, making the materials to work with is a step I can't do without, it is what inspires the final piece. I would rather call it play since the more I have fun with the process and experimentation the more the creativity comes out. Always at some point I say to myself you have to narrow it done, there are too many possibilities! In the next couple of posts I will share some results and choices I have made, what to keep working with, what to give up.Turmeric is definitely staying.
The color is a pleasure to work with, so rich and luscious. Here I've used a thick paste to paint it directly on to the clothe.
Fabric dyed in turmeric then partially rusted.
