I am glad I participated in the silk dyeing w/shibori technique online class. It was the first time I worked with silks along with the first time I was introduced to "Colorhue dyes" (quick set dyes). I really enjoy the ease of using these dyes. I admit they create softer shades and colors than MX fiber dyes but I enjoy the ease of working with them. It is nice to be able to swish my hands in the color mixtures without getting the norm stained nail-beds or hands from dye that can stay for days.
And finally this weekend I got to play with my art and in my studio....
