I recently purchased "Tray Dyeing" by Leslie Morgan & Claire Benn, and started trying some of their techniques. I have used variations on their methods, but I'm always interested in learning how certain patterns are achieved. So far, I'm pleased with the two pieces - sarongs - I dyed using the 'Water' pattern:
I pretty much stuck to their color scheme on the first one shown here, but used my own color scheme on the second. I like the blending of the colors on both, as well as the pattern. Next, I hope to try some of their overdyeing methods to create trees... a pattern I have wanted to do for a few years now. If you haven't had a chance to review this book yet, and you are interested in learning some beautiful techniques for blending colors and patterns, check it out!
