自豪地，我捆绑起来并将其发布，并得到了解收到收据的确认。I didn’t hear anything subsequently and family commitments made it impossible to get up to Glasgow to attend the show, so it wasn’t until someone very kindly posted some photos from the show on FB that I learned that it had been placed 2nd in the Contemporary category! I’m thrilled and I’m really looking forward to getting the judges’ comments back along with my quilt.
最初我买了600万个面料，认为我会冰染上它并从中制作衣服，虽然我决定用它只是用于染色实验，并寻找我的梳妆台的不同面料。为了使其更容易处理，我将其切成4〜1米的碎片，然后将其全部用Colsperse洗净，以去除任何织物治疗方法。Unfortunately, I probably didn’t use enough Colsperse – after reading some fairly fruitless and contradictory results from an internet search, I emailed Colourcraft (the makers of Colsperse) to ask them directly how much I ought to use when washing fabric in a washing machine with their product (it is the 21st century and I have better things to do than wash umpty metres of cotton fabric by hand!), and what they told me suggested that I should have used three times as much. This may be relevant later on.
I’m actually not a big fan of this pen in general – it disappears disconcertingly fast (except when it doesn’t), so it was a bit of a race against time between marking up the fabric and managing to get it stitched while the ink was still visible. Add a thumping migraine and I really wasn’t a happy bunny last Saturday!
此刻苏打灰溶液击中织物，所有紫色笔标记都以复仇者返回 - 这可能对Sypy发送秘密信息，但由于我不是，我不是，我不是最高兴的！在公平性上，我一直在半想到这是一个问题，所以虽然这很烦人，但这不是一个巨大的震惊。Fortunately, after half an hour in the soda ash solution, the marks seemed to dissipate quite a lot and I figured that any that hadn’t would probably be hidden by the dye anyway, so I moved onto the next stage, arranged my fabrics on the racks, covered them with chunks of ice and finally sprinkled generous quantities of my chosen dyes over each side:
我使用了Procion Dyes，显然它们并非所有纯色 - 一些都是不同颜色的混合物，并且由于水（流动阶段）在织物上的运动（流动相）的运动而以色谱法分开的不同染料组分。有趣的，但不是完全是我要去的看法！事实上，危险地靠近彩虹呕吐物。“超”蓝色可能并不是所有的超级！However, I rinsed everything thoroughly in cold tap water and performed the rather tedious task of unpicking all the shibori stitching I’d spent so long putting in. Next time I will find some white yarn or cotton to use instead of beads – it will be much easier and I won’t feel compelled to salvage scraps of yarn like I did with the beads! A hot wash with more Colsperse and I could finally see the finished effects (the fabrics were still damp in this photos, so they’re a little darker than when dry):
