Clay Paste Resist and Crackle Shibori!

Amy Grief did some really nice prints in Sunday's class using a couple of techniques on cotton.  First, she created a horse print fabric using stencil and clay paste then dyeing in indigo.  Next she created what I can only call crackle resist Shibori (for want of a better name right now) on cotton cloth that was crumpled into a ball, tied with string and then dyed in indigo.  No two pieces are alike, and some of the patterns are really remarkable!

These four are all crackled Shibori created by Amy Grief by 

Crumpling cotton fabric and tying it

before dyeing in indigo.

Great job, Amy!

Of course, because I listed this first, blogger decided to show off and put it at the bottom.  Amy used Clay paste resist and stencil to create this horse fabric for an acquaintance in Kentucky.
