Assemblage Dying Pushing the Limits colour ways

This assemblage is similar to the last post but used colours that are not "harmonious. There is white printed on white cotton fabric, cotton sheeting and cotton broadcloth, Stranded embroidery cotton and silk cocoons. The procion dye colours used were scarlet, cobalt blue and golden yellow. The fabrics had been in a soda ash bath and were rung out and placed crumpled up in a ziplock bag. The colours were added randomly with an equal amount of each colour. The zip lock bag was sealed and the colours squished around a bit and them left to batch for several housrs. It will be interesting to see what I use these for.
