Digital printing for Shibori 2

As this shows - after washing, the image is somewhat paler... some, though not a lot, of the ink washes out... very much like washing the excess of dye out of a fabric. The first question has been answered... it is possible to make a digital print on silk and then use the fabric for shibori... yep... on on ....
The silk has been stitched in two directions and will be gathered and dyed... and steamed for shibori in the hope that some imagery will remain in between the gathers and the structure will give even more of an organic feel.
