Transfer Dye

Yesterday I transfer dyed these fabrics during a demonstration / mini workshop by Robyn and Meredith ( not sure of surnames but they are from the Boonah area) at Queensland Quilters Art Quilters meeting day. The colours are not as good as they really are! I have tied small rocks in one before sponging on the dye . In another I tried to use lace as a resist. Another I painted on one colour then added rock salt as it dried in the sun. One simply had several colours painted on as in a landscape and the final one I had done the painting of the dye with the fabric on the top of a piece of photocopy paper .This paper was then ironed, with its residual colours onto fabric which is the traditional way to use transfer dyes.
