Deconstructed Printing Part II

After waiting two days after trying deconstructed printing on Tuesday, I dried my fabric, and then washed out the extra dye.

A fair amount of dye washed out, so the nice dark orange I thought I had when I was printing, is now a lighter orange. Oh well.

I think using dye on fabric is fun, but I'm more WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as I do my art work. That's why I like to use fabric or acrylic paints instead of dye. It was fun to try the deconstructed printing, but I'm going to stick with my usual way of working.
