A textile series with materials generously supplied by Dharma Trading Co. The first, a modified Shirt no. 1 made up with a medium weight linen. Simple experiments with Jacquard SolarFast dye in purple and cardboard shapes for a resist.
Quick appllication of the SolarFast dye with a foam brush and arranging the cardboard to form a pattern.
Working with smaller pieces proved easier, I modified the pattern to create a split fron with a center seam and yoke for the back. The front pieces show the difference in exposure times, the right during midday and the dye allowed to dry completley, while the left side was late afternoon and the dye rinsed off while still wet.
