Workshop today at Palmwoods - Discharge Dyieng

I had a wonderful day at Palmwoods Textile Group today. We played around with discharge dyeing. I had black, maroon and dark green fabric. Someone gave me a pieces of purple. For some reason the dark green came out a blue colour.

I had always wanted to try this out but never got around to it. I can see so many possibilities with stamping, stenciling, brushing, sponging and using a needle or fine paint brush. It was a mess around day today but soon I will try something a bit different and more precise.

What do you think of my pieces? I enjoyed the day so much.
Keep stitching

These turned out great. I love the effects you got--especially on the rosy one and the leaves too. Got to try this soon.
