Colour me happy!


I've been playing with my new colours from Genesis Creations (their customer service is excellent) and I must say they're pretty cool. The Liquid Radiance colours perform like a dye but are not a dye and are completely non toxic. You don't need all the chemicals as fixatives either, they're heat fixed. I used some habutai silk scraps to experiment and the results are pretty impressive. The above piece was achieved with the assistance of epsom salts.


This one was streaked with 4 different colours, then scrunched to allow some bleeding.


                And this one is 3 colours applied in spirals then sprinkled with raw sugar.
                     I have lots of other techniques to try, these colours are a lot of fun!

Happy weekend to you all :)
