Arrowmont Day 2

Tuesday at Arrowmont was filled with pasting and learning about cutting our stencils correctly and getting those pasted up. More layers of dye and mordant went onto the pieces we started on day one. We used cudzu, persimmon and black walnut with a choice of mordants to shift the colors. It was really different for me to work with subtle colors! I love Arrowmont because you have opportunities to work outside your comfort zone in a setting where it is comoftable. We finally steamed our projects late in the evening and then took off to see the lightning bugs in the state park that light up in sync to make a beautiful wave pattern.
