I did some experimenting on using layers to create dinemsion, space, and texture.
I didn't take many pictures of the process and cant seem to get them off my iphone to this blog, but the result is certainly interesting and worth taking a look at. These pictures do not do justice to the vibrant colors of the wall hanging. I dyed the fabric a base color of moss green. Then folded, pressed, and basted the folds to stay where they were.
You can see the string marks where I wound the piece on the pipe. It was a challenge to get it on the pipe. No scrunching was done with the tying process. I used a 6" diameter pipe since the wall hanging is 21"h x 30"w. The over dyes used were turquoise and national blue, which I adore.
