I continue to be fascinated and enamored with the results I get when I use can lids and spring clamps to resist dye. I have quite a collection of tin can lids now, and decided to use fabric from my scrap bin and left over dyes to create a piece today. I used colors from the cool spectrum, then drizzled yellow and orange over them. I really like how the dyes seeped under the lids ever so slightly, creating interesting designs but leaving much of the circles undyed:
Tomorrow, I am going to try the technique on a shirt to see if it translates as well on clothing... stay tuned!
