natural dye and block printing
After the success of my firsts attempt to hand carve a stamp and block print, I start thinking about mixing natural dye and block printing.
As you know I love natural dye and every few weeks I have the urge to experiment with dying. It fascinates me and I found the slow process very relaxing. My life is very full on from the moment I woke up till 8pm when the girls are in bed! Usually, I’m still running around trying to fit everything in even after bedtime! However, when I dye, somehow I manage to slow down and relax, I love it.
Few weeks ago I dyed a little body suit for my daughter with avocado stones.
I decided to have a go with words this time, as I thought it would be a good challenge.
Above the body suit after the avocado dye, below my hand carved stamp with the word 'hello'. I took the picture in the evening while working, apologies for the bad lighting!
