To recap, I started this piece with white cotton fabric. The first step was using foam brushes to apply procion fabric dyes onto damp fabric, allowing colors to bleed. The second and third steps were additional procion dyes and vat dyes screened and dye-painted onto dry fabric to achieve crisper lines. Today the fabric paints (Shiva Paintstiks) came out, and I did some painting on the lower left and on the background water area.
