This one is a shibori, and the one below looks a bit like a gerbera. Love the colours.
The one above uses the techniques of scrunching and squashing - isn't the terminology cool?
The next one has yellow (my least favourite colour), and uses epson salts to give the effect of coral, don't know how well you can see that in the photos.
This last one was supposed to be a flower. I wasn't that happy with my technique, but the photo looks pretty good. If I had Helen's skill, I could do some more focussed painting to give a centre, and quilt it to really make it look like a flower. Maybe one day.
Another experiment that my sister and I will try is dyeing on a warm dry day. The day that we did the class was cool and cloudy, with showers in the afternoon. The rain was very inconvenient when we were trying to dry the fabric. Apparently warm dry days = bright colours, cool days = softer colours. The dye is really cool cos it works on cotton, polyester, silk or wool. If I never get round to knitting socks, I could always dye a plain pair, lol.
