These were all done with slightly different techniques. Isn't the green one yummy? Kathy also did some stamping on her painted quilt (on the left). Additional dyes and scarves were purchased so we could teach Mom and Florence how to make some. Florence was most dubious about the project because she said she "didn't have a crafty bone in her body".
This technique Kathy showed her was simply scrunching the scarf and pouring the diluted dye directly on the silk, and letting it dry all scrunched up. Some salt was also sprinkled on to draw out some of the dye and create texture. There was twisting, pleating, rubber band wrapping, scrunching and dyeing happening for a solid 15 minutes in Florence's kitchen.
Silly Mom providing comic relief!
