After the workshop I had methyl cel left and also acrylic paints already mixed and thinned. So I took the plunge and tried out working on fabric. I’d bought several items “ready-to-dye” from Dharma Trading, and started with some simple cotten hankerschiefs. This was pretty unplanned – I added some GAC900 to the paints I’d mixed for the paper workshop, and hoped for the best. The first one came out too pale, but eventually I got some decent results. I made sets of three in the same pattern but different colors, thinking I might sell them in sets of three. The hankies, about 14″ square, are small enough that I could manage laying them on the size by myself. Of the 12 I did, 9 are good enough to sell, and three I’ll keep myself. I went back to using cloth hankies about 12 years ago, inspired by finding some that had belonged to my mother. It makes sense, given that I go through enormous amounts of tissues. Perhaps others in the green frame of mind will think so too.
