Dying fabric for fashion project - LO1, LO4

December 4, 2017

For the fashion project I have decided to work onto coloured backgrounds. This is something that I never do and I felt that I needed a bit more excitement for my work.  Recently I have been getting quite bored of my style and this is something that I don'd want to happen.  I choose to dye my fabrics using the procion hot dyes rather than the dyrect as I felt the colours were more vibrant.  As my fabric wasn't that big I only had to dye with the salt for 15 minutes and then fix the dye with the soda ash for 15 minutes as well.  For when I create my bigger pieces I will obviously have to dye it for longer.  I am really pleased with how these have dyed, this was one of my first times dying fabric to print onto.  I really like these colours that I have chosen from the dyes. I am then going to use pigment binder on top of these colours to make layers and textures of screens I have also made.
