New t shirt experiments



My dear friend Ellen agreed to model my new creations.  Once again I am working with procion dyes to create interesting effects on cotton t shirts I have bought from Dharma trading.  The cotton is lovely and it "eats" the dye well. 
This hoodie began in a pale yellow dye bath, and then I over dyed part of it with a blue.  The hood has stayed yellow as have part of the arms which gives it an ombr√© effect.  Then I printed it with a thermofax print I created.  
Ellen is sporting a sleeveless tee that was only partially dyed and then printed with another thermofax design.  To be or not to be......
Michael is modelling a tee shirt that was dyed in two different dye baths over a couple of days, rinsed and washed in between.  I left white at the chest line, and the dye creeped up and joined in spots.  I feel like I'm narrating my own fashion show!
I'm having fun with this partial immersion idea and plan to continue.  Thoughts?

  1. I knew a man, Joe Tiger, in my youth, back in the early sixties. He worked for my father in Maracaibo Venezuela. He had a daughter named Daniela. What are the odds that it is just a coincidence? Even if it should be only that, I enjoy your art work. Best of luck to you.

  2. I'm Betty, Daniela's older half-sister (not wiser like yours). I didn't grow up with Joe and Dolly Tiger because I stayed with my father in Caracas. But I did go both to the oil camp in Roblecito and to Maracaibo to visit three times a year. And I remember your father as being a part of our "family" very well. I have passed this on to Dolly since she will remember him much better. Joe unfortunately passed away many years ago.

  6. Before they used to spot upon neighborhood markets and now they need to connect with global style marketplaces. They have crossed the lines and have consistently attempted to think of something new and uncommon. Cute fashion
