Spring Brights

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

So today I have been experimenting with Disperse dyes using the heat press. You pint onto the shiny side of the brown paper ( so the dye isn't absorbed into the paper ) and once dry place on top of a polyester fabric in the heat press and press for 30 secs. Voila! 
However I miss judged the colour as when it was on the brown paper it looked beautiful and muted and blended however once pressed it came out a lot stronger and looked rather unsophisticated. A bit like a rushed felt tip drawing. I tried to rectify one of my samples by free machine stitching into it to add abit of depth but I am still very unhappy with the result.
