This morning I made a duplicate "plaid" using paint. No it's not quite the same. I changed the order of the colour application and because I wanted to use the same applicator, there was a time lag that allowed the paint to set and start drying, while I cleaned the brush. That last pass with yellow, I ran short of paint.
Here is yesterday's dye,
And here is today's painted piece.
Because I used dye that was dissolved in alginate, it was very spreadable on dry fabric. The paint less so. The alginate also kept the dye wet longer so there was more movement and colour mixing. The green and the purple on the dyed fabric were surprisingly more developed. Do I want to redo the exp. using wet fabric for my paint? No, I think I'll leave this experiment where it stands.
