Steam Dye Bundle Reveal- UnRuly Cloth & Canvas 


Natural Dyeing .. with Plant and Metal Alloy Steam Bundles 
there is something incredibly satisfying in the not knowing
the creating without any real influence on the outcome

the Bundle is wrapped
with plant material
maybe a little metal here or there
add a dash of tannin
wrap tightly
then FULL STEAM ahead

I even like looking at the different shapes the individual bundles make
snugly wrapped around a twig
they fibre cloth textile holds on 
to see what might happen next

noticing a certain reluctance to unwrap 
as I enjoy the beauty of the string 
arrangements now deeply saturated

a little guesswork as to what might have caused the rusty marks on the cloth
the fibre stained letting the weave peek trough

The Wet unwrap is a photographers joy

a big piece of rusted metal
gifted to me by my kind builder next door 
who stays puzzled at my love affair with rust
but he loves the natural textile look
so continues to surprise me with new choice finds

a little color where it happened to be snuggled up to the cloth

Rust Metal Dye, and a suprise purple yet to be identified .
a leaf from my garden snuggled against something else that caused the chemical reaction
I could not repeat it in the next dye batch
so as of yet it remains a mystery
