Chapter Three
Images 3.19, 3.20, 3.21
Images 3.16, 3.17, 3.18
Images 3.11, 3.12 & 3.15 (scrim – original better than image)
Images 3.8 & 3.9
Monoprinting Images – some results and photos are better than others so I decided to leave some out. In my evaluation I said I must take care to clean the Gelli plate more often and not allow a build up of mixed colours.  Mixed colours can look effective but usually not!
Images 3.6 & 3.7 - selection of threads & beads  in chosen colour scheme
Images 3.4 & 3.5  – selection of bought & dyed materials in my chosen colour scheme
Images 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 from my workbook
Chapter Three - preparation of fabrics, threads & beads for this module.
Looking at my spiral design source for this module in Chapter One I realise I have very few images showing colour.  This choice of turquoise and orange red was made with the child's cot toy in mind in Image 5 but I will try and find a better example.


  1. Tried earlier to open this chapter so its great to see it. You have definately got the dyeing technique across, loved your fabrics. I still have a way to go in being happy with dyeing so it was great to read your notes. Cheers

  2. I do feel more confident with the dyeing now but, like most things, it has been practice! I recommend Helen Deighan's book, Magic Dyeing Made Easy, if you have not already got it.
