I had started a moon that is predominantly potassium permanganate dyed, but it felt forced, so that’s by the wayside. It’s hard to not repeat oneself sometimes, though it’s great for sampling ideas!
These have been sitting around since January 2012! I’ve been going through my stash of unfinished work, wondering what to get rid of, what to cannabalize and wondering why i did some of it 🙂 All hand dyed with “OTC” dyes (Rit and/or Dylon and/or Tintex), they have a lovely tactile quality already, being either “harem” cloth or cheesecloth, and a fair amount of machine done free motion.
I’ve always loved these pieces, but wasn’t sure where to take them beyond “add some hand stitch” scribbled on the back of one. Since i am currently working on a moon series specifically for an upcoming artisan sale with Contextural, what the hell? USE ‘EM! Maybe i can sneak in that hand work with the Skeevey Brights as well……
I won’t be cutting up *all* of my old unfinished work, but let’s just say, plans are afoot for other pieces that do not involve moons!
