More Tie&Dye styled into cards ;D

Hey there! I’ve just finished making some Tie&Dyes (4 to be specific) again this time around and I was making them for Deepavali. (Yeah, I can’t believe I’m giving them out…) This time, I pasted them and turned them into cards XD

The colours used this time was Cobalt Blue, Purple, Pink, Lemon Yellow and White although the colours are sometimes mixed for a different hues or colours. The colours for this batch are kinda pale >_< since I placed a lot of emphasization on more tones and graduation(?). 

Okay these are before,

:I know I said 4 of them but I forgot to take a photo of the last one that I made, sorry >_<

and after,

Another view of it,

and the rest of them…

はい、おわりました!I’m finished! The duration of this tiny project took about 2 hours or so. Again, the tissues are of Kimberly Clark’s Scott brand 🙂

See ya next time!

P.S: My dad asked me, ‘Why don’t you do it on clothes?’. I said , “Don’t dyeing them need lots of money?” Besides, I feel I can’t really be free in choosing the colours and the design of the clothes.

Tie&Dye Series~ Part 1

Hi there! I will now show my Tie&Dye Series done by me~ I just did it on Friday so it’s the latest thing from me now.

If I could make it, I will probably put up some of my writings here, just for fun XD But none of them will ever have endings, since my head has a ‘my life hasn’t started so why write an ending for a story?’ thing, so in advance, sorry ._.

The colours used for this time (at least for these batch) were Ultramarine, Cobalt, Purple, Pink, Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Brilliant Red and White. The tissues were from Kimberly Clark’s Scott brand that were used in hotels.

I like to use the ones from here because of the durability of the tissues. Unlike the ones I use, facial tissues are too soft and absorbent for tie and dyes so if you put too much colour (as well as water) to it, when you want to open it up, it will tear. This is not the first time I did this but it has been since a few years since end of 2005. The photos of them will be posted up later.

I tried to fold the tissue differently so I would get different results from the poster colour painted on so everything wouldn’t be the same. I actually wanted to open up this piece but I decided not to. I thought it will be more attractive this way 🙂

Next will be… this! I added extra volume of water to make it look like it’s of watercolour. It’s different from the rest of the batch. All these has lighter tints to it but it came out nicely~

This one? I don’t really know what to say. What do you think?

This is つきの色 (Tsuki no Iro) or in English, Moon Colours. This was the last one that I made from the remaining colours I have on my palette which were Purple, Cobalt and a mixture of colours that I mixed from the leftover colours.

This piece is my favourite~
