I've been playing with a lot of tie dye lately. I wanted to incorporate traditional shibori techniques with modern colors and tie dye. So i decided to do a kumo shiobori tie and use my arctic waters tie dye kit as the dye. It's a departure from the usual indigo and it's fun to branch out colorwise. The kit is available here:
So first I folded the fabric into a diagonal grid and then marked the centers of the squares. I wanted to have a guide for where to put the 'webs'. Then I went about tying up the fabric with thread.
then I soaked it in the soda ash solution and applied the dye via the squeeze bottles included in the kit. I let it sit overnight in plastic wrap, and then rinsed in cold until the water ran clear. Then I washed it on hot with synthrapol and dried it on hot.
