In this chapter I experimented with a Shibori technique to create semi permanent shapes in silk organza, silk organdie, acetate satin and nylon shere.
I used a variety of items, ranging from stones to shells, beads and buttons.
These small items were tied in place with thread and dyed string and then steamed for 10 minutes .
4/7/2 Silk organza over dupion silk
This was a sample cerated in one of the previous exercises and as you can see the shapes have worked really well.
4/7\3 Acetate satin tied with dyed string, which has bled as I intended.
4/7/4 top left nylon sheer, bottom right silk organza
4/7/5 silk organdie, tied with dyed string
4/7/6 another nylon sheer pre worked sample.
I really liked this exercise and was very surprised to find that the shapes had held firm after having 24 hours to dry and set.
It definitely has a lot of potential and I could see it making a very good starting point the this module's PAP
