Aubergine leaves and shivas

Aubergine is one of my favourite procion dye colours - along with Moroccan red - but yesterday aubergine prevailed. This is the piece I rubbed from the leafy public art in Ipswich which I did not heat set.  The shiva has provided an interesting resist for the dye - and when I'm in Ipswich next week I'll do more rubbings with the shivas and see how much depth can be achieved with the layering. I'll remember to heat set after the next rubbings!

Great to see the rubbing- nothing like doing them personally. You must be feeling better?

Ankie - yes some came off as I hadn't heat set it pre-dyeing ... but I like the outcome
Sue: Yes, feeling much improved and resuming "normal" life from Monday ...and there is nothing like rubbing!
