As I prepared to post this post, I realised that this is my 150th post !!! I never would I have thought when I started blogging I would be still here after so long. Probably time for a review ? ! That will have to be next time. As first I have to complete the story of my exhibition piece.
So having prepared all my fabrics :
and having laid out my background.
It was time to start felting.
After just a little work!! I had this final felted piece.
I treated myself to a thermometer before I started dying and a few tests told me that what I'd thought was less than 60oC was in fact hotter. So with my Ithermometer I was able to control my temperatures to better exploit the red dyes in the madder.
Here is the final result.
Very textured, and very red !
Off in the post to be exhibited by Artybird Carnforth.
