Warp Dyeing

Well I just dropped off 3 off my paintings at the Riddle Gallery in Bryan, TX which will be having an opening this Friday, May 6, 2016 starting at 6pm. The theme of the show is about ‘happiness’ and it will feature a range of local artists and talent.

Currently I am working on dyeing my warp. I started by winding off all of my length of thread on a warping board. IMG_1420

I then stretched out my bundles of thread and began to bind them in interesting patterns. I then soaked them in a water/soda ash solution which is the dye activator. I then mixed up some dyes and began to paint them in sections.

After applying dye to each desired section I wrapped them up to cure.

And now I wait to see the results 🙂
