madame gets lazy




not quite, but sounds like a self indulgent title. after years of working on this scarf, and this is not a figure of speech, see this, this and this and this. the aizome layer has no post therefore it goes unaccounted for.
after all that time spent weaving, dyeing-note the spelling- stitching, dyeing and overdyeing it still needed punch, but madame wanted a shortcut. i had surely worked for one!



enters alum mordant painting and alginate painting resist.
then cochineal dye, almost a lake because the alum water practically evaporated. paint paint and cure. more tomorrow and we shall see if i can call this done or quits.
notice how come  september -october and i go non stop?  because it's not hot.

the red  idea comes from susan who inspired me to go this way.

  2. oh wow.. you have spent a lot of time on this. It should be in a museum or art gallery's permanent collection.
