Next lesson from the gourd

May 1, 2017

Yesterday was a busy day.  I set some fabric to dyeing while I worked on this gourd piece.  I try not to get attached to the results because these are "practice gourds".  For color, I use dye-na-flow which is a textile paint and well, I am a textile artist.   Even on textiles, dye-na-flow needs to be heat set with an iron.  I tested the paint on the gourd for stability.  The paints still need to be heat set which means a trip to the art store for a heat gun. Fingers crossed, the colors stabilize. 

 

Here's yesterday's result.   Enjoy.
