Shibori 15

Putting digital image into shibori

The surface is painted with Golden digital ground - transparent and white

The image is printed onto the surface and allowed to dry and then coated with a waterproof sealer for shibori process

Fabric is then gathered and steamed.
The image is intact.
The fabric has a skin like quality and suggests snake skin - because of the imagery I guess
the Skin is very organic because of how it flexes and will return to its gathered shape.

Very interesting process. Not sure what this special fabric is...but love how it takes color and gathers and steam! These all do look like wonderful sea creatures! Kool!!!
