There is nothing stretched and waiting in my studio today. I hung up my rabbit-moon-greens work to cure. I really enjoy this breathing space. The soy protein in the fabric does too, and needs this time to oxidize and lock the colors in.
I am also soaking the paste off some work that has been curing for several weeks.
While preparing my stencil-dyed cloth for a soak in the tub this a.m., I noticed this frosty vision of the back yard.
The fabric has been curing for about a week, hanging from the ceiling near a radiator. The backside shows the raised texture created by contrast between the dried rice paste resist and the dyed areas.
The work soaks in the tub for awhile to dissolve the rice paste resist. Now it is hanging to dry.
