惊喜!Shibori Hanabi.

我的Shibori Hanabi Wall Hanging诞生了渴望尝试用不同的颜色在Shibori手中。我在大约18个月前开始,缝制了设计,然后“拉起”每个部分,染上了这件作品,拉起下一节,再次染色......等等,直到整个设计完全染色,大约5-6染色阶段IIRC!

我随后在Shibori上有了几本书,发现了很多事情,我必须通过审判和错误来教授自己!我不知道什么,如果有的话,当我没有点击涩叶缝器时,仍然是我的原始缝制的设计,但在这一事件中,我真的很满意不同的形状如何出来,而且不同的颜色也很明显。bob体育冠军

对于支持,我使用了来自妈妈的藏品的“块”(技术术语!)棉花面料,大多是白色,但用鲜花印刷出来。它经历了所有相同的染色阶段,因为涩叶件所做的,使得前后和背部会很好地系在一起。

我在绗缝开始,使用滑轨,并发现它是一个有趣但集中密集的过程,以定义缝合和染色所留下的形状和纹理。然后突然出现了更多的,更紧迫的项目,我将它放在一段时间,而我专注于其他事情。我用试图为FOQ完成它来简单地玩具玩具,但它对标准类别不够大,我不想开始在不需要的地方添加边界,所以我搁置了这个想法。

A couple of months ago, however, someone posted on the UKQU facebook group about the Scottish Quilting Show having extended the entry deadline and out of curiosity I checked the website to see what the categories and rules were. The lower size limit for “standard” quilts was smaller and I realised my shibori piece would be suitable – if I cracked on with quilting it! One entry form later and I had a month to finish the quilting and get it to the organisers by the Feb 25th deadline. I was also looking after my post-operative brother-in-law while mum helped my sister with her two small children; it became quite a challenge to sneak in quilting when I could! Somehow, though, I managed to get it finished and decided to face it instead of using a binding, a technique I’d never tried before! I love how it looks, though.

自豪地,我捆绑起来并将其发布,并得到了解收到收据的确认。I didn’t hear anything subsequently and family commitments made it impossible to get up to Glasgow to attend the show, so it wasn’t until someone very kindly posted some photos from the show on FB that I learned that it had been placed 2nd in the Contemporary category! I’m thrilled and I’m really looking forward to getting the judges’ comments back along with my quilt.

染色实验 - 第1轮

我长期以来一直着迷于染色过程 - 赫克,我的第二年网络项目在UNI上是织物染料的化学 - 但是自从我上次试图自己染成织物已经有一段时间了。我用织物染料达到了织物染料Pantone Marsala挑战几年前,这是一个非常简单的染浴与迪尔 - 扣篮,等待,冲洗,洗,缝制。最近,我一直致力于冰染色和日本的涩叶抗蚀剂染色技术。在那里,我想知道这两种技术无法合并为什么这两种技术的任何充分理由?我看不到一个!为额外的乐趣,我的面料为此实验被打印出白色的白色,带有羽毛图案:

Shibori +冰染色+印花织物吗?WTH,让我们这样做!

Originally I bought 6m of this fabric thinking that I would ice-dye it and make a dressing gown from it, although I’ve since decided to use it just for dyeing experiments and look for a different fabric for my dressing gown. To make it easier to handle, I cut it into four ~1m pieces and one ~2m piece, then washed them all with Colsperse to remove any fabric treatments. Unfortunately, I probably didn’t use enough Colsperse – after reading some fairly fruitless and contradictory results from an internet search, I emailed Colourcraft (the makers of Colsperse) to ask them directly how much I ought to use when washing fabric in a washing machine with their product (it is the 21st century and I have better things to do than wash umpty metres of cotton fabric by hand!), and what they told me suggested that I should have used three times as much. This may be relevant later on.

After looking up some shibori tutorials and ideas online (theTownhill Studio blog特别有用),我觉得我有一个合理的处理我应该瞄准的东西,所以我将1米片中的一个剪切到四个非常慷慨的胖子中,并开始用松散的波浪模式标记第一件。我的水擦笔 - 或者我试过!不幸的是,自从我上次使用这支笔并且它已经干涸了,它已经忽略了一段时间,所以我狠狠地决定使用我的空气擦除标记笔 - 这是一个相当关注的决定,因为我稍后会显示。所有标记和缝纫都在织物的相反方面完成。

I’m actually not a big fan of this pen in general – it disappears disconcertingly fast (except when it doesn’t), so it was a bit of a race against time between marking up the fabric and managing to get it stitched while the ink was still visible. Add a thumping migraine and I really wasn’t a happy bunny last Saturday!

Townhill Studio建议使用短的白纱或厚棉花作为缝合的每一块塞子,但我没有立即这样的东西,所以我用了一些小,便宜的珠子 - 它锻炼了。我也开始使用卓越的线程的底线来拼接,但这结果是一个非常糟糕的想法,因为当我试图绘制线程时,它太容易被抢购。我发现自己在第一块中取代了几条缝合线,随后使用了吉特曼涤纶线,这对所有缝线更强大(尽管如果被拉得太难了,但它非常不受破损!)。缝制线条时,我发现如果在我开始缝合之前手指沿着线条压制,我会更快地走得更快 - 它使遵循绘制的线条更容易。如上所述,这是与偏头痛做的绝对谋杀,但一旦完成,我真的很喜欢效果!(而且我击落了一些止痛药,隐藏在一个黑暗的房间里......)

The next design I tried was some concentric circles:

我标记了一个Dots 5“分开的交错网格(Errrm,除了我显然没有右转!),然后使用棉卷轴和一卷遮蔽胶带作为模板来绘制周围的圆圈。外圈用单一的褶皱缝制,如涟漪,内圈用行驶线缝制,然后用剩余的螺纹尾部牢固地收集并牢固地绑定到“茎”中。我也把一个珠子塞进了每个聚集中,并将它定位在圈子的中间,在那里它成为绑定茎的刀片。

不幸的是我没有第三片Shibori的WIP照片我试过 - 这已经很晚了,我累了!它是在织物上不同尺寸的六尖雪花形状的随机散射,然后用单个褶皱缝制。第四次脂肪季度完全没有缝制,这样我就可以看到织物在没有额外的涩叶效应的情况下如何染色。

一些空气擦除笔标记仍然是相当明显的,但谷歌建议他们也可以用水去掉,所以我将所有的碎片(包括未标记,未缝制的一缝)浸入冷水中过夜,以去除任何剩余的分数。(哈!)

第二天早上,我建立了我的染色钻机 - 一套可堆叠的线材冷却架和塑料盒,架子适合它们,既是为其制造的,都是从当地折扣商店查理的£不多。

两个机架在盒子里整齐地适合,仍然可以盖上盖子;三个机架在顶部窥视,但如果我真的希望他们来说仍然可以工作。

两个胖子在一个机架上并排齐全,所以我设置了两个机架,使上织物滴在较低的织物上。大量的报纸被放下来拯救我的地板从任何潜在的染料溢出。

我也用一些塑料勺子来处理染料,用我的染色套件和防尘面具来处理染料,以防止吸入任何令人讨厌的东西:

对于冰,我从路上的车库买了一袋派对冰,然后用擀面杖反复地打破了冰块一点:

我使用这袋冰袋中的3/4,用于这种染色的会议。

现在我必须在这里忏悔。我喜欢染色和冰染色的概念,我don’t过于喜欢the “rainbow vomit” effect that often seems to occur when these techniques are used. Shibori usually manages to be much classier, and I have decided that a key factor in this is the restrained use of colour. Consequently, I decided that I would only use a maximum of two colours on each each of my pieces – turquoise and navy blue for one side and ultra blue and emerald green for the other side:

其中有六个是入门套件,海军蓝色,黑色和祖母绿绿色被单独购买。

Before I could dye my fat quarters, however, I needed to finish preparing the fabric by soaking it in a solution of soda ash so that the dyes would stick to the fibres better, and here is where that air-erase pen came back to bite me:

此刻苏打灰溶液击中织物,所有紫色笔标记都以复仇者返回 - 这可能对Sypy发送秘密信息,但由于我不是,我不是,我不是最高兴的!在公平性上,我一直在半想到这是一个问题,所以虽然这很烦人,但这不是一个巨大的震惊。Fortunately, after half an hour in the soda ash solution, the marks seemed to dissipate quite a lot and I figured that any that hadn’t would probably be hidden by the dye anyway, so I moved onto the next stage, arranged my fabrics on the racks, covered them with chunks of ice and finally sprinkled generous quantities of my chosen dyes over each side:

RHS:海军蓝+绿松石,顶部:Shibori涟漪,底部:涩叶雪花。LHS:翡翠绿色+超蓝色,顶部:Shibori圈子,底部:普通面料。

我覆盖着粘胶胶片的盒子,让一切都干涸,然后离开了整个批次24小时融化并做它的事情。出色地。我确实在一个点戳了一点雪花,以确保他们正在彻底滴下。

架子做了一个绝佳的工作,使织物拿出熔融水染料混合物。

24小时后,所有的冰都很好,真正融化,我热衷于看看我得到了什么结果。特别感到非常惊讶地看待绿色+蓝色一面发生了什么。对于声称是蓝色的染料,它肯定包含一个很多红色。绿色也分裂了一点,虽然没有显然。相比之下,海军+绿松石方面的含量要多得多。

I used Procion dyes and clearly they’re not all pure colour – some are blends of different colours and the different dye components separated in a chromatographic fashion thanks to the movement of the water (mobile phase) over the fabric (stationary phase). Interesting, but not exactly the look I was going for! Dangerously close to Rainbow Vomit, in fact. “Ultra” blue is perhaps not all that ultra after all! However, I rinsed everything thoroughly in cold tap water and performed the rather tedious task of unpicking all the shibori stitching I’d spent so long putting in. Next time I will find some white yarn or cotton to use instead of beads – it will be much easier and I won’t feel compelled to salvage scraps of yarn like I did with the beads! A hot wash with more Colsperse and I could finally see the finished effects (the fabrics were still damp in this photos, so they’re a little darker than when dry):

这是一个混合袋!涩叶倾向于不如我希望的那么明确,我有一些理论为什么,我将在下面讨论。圆圈是最有效的,可能是因为分离染料组分的色谱效果。我对颜色的工作方式并不生气,但我认为那里有保证。圈子下方的普通面料是我的期待to see when I applied green and blue dyes. It’s ok, although a stronger, darker green would be nicer. The snowflakes were a fail as far as the shibori stitching was concerned (pretty much none of them came out) but the feathers against the marbled blue background is really attractive so I can’t call it a complete fail. The ripples worked pretty nicely, I was relieved to see. And not a hint of purple pen anywhere, thank goodness!

在更一般的备注上,颜色(特别是海军蓝色)最终比我预期的那么饱和,并希望他们成为。更强大的颜色将有助于提高涩叶对比和羽毛的外观,因此我将在未来的实验中提高这一点。

结论和猜想

这是一个非常有趣的第一个实验,我学会了一个很多。我学到的第一件事是空气擦除笔是标记Shibori设计的糟糕选择!我现在正在研究一些基于粉笔的标记工具。我还了解到,当与冰染技术一起使用时,染料不能依赖于不分裂,尽管这可能导致计划时的有趣效果。

Shibori缝线一般不起作用,希望我夸大了几个可能的原因:1)24小时可能是长时间的政治 - 这肯定是织物染色的很长一段时间!可能足以让染料芯吸成最牢固的缝合和褶皱,也许是什么?我怀疑。2)在我试图去除笔标记时,织物在施用苏打灰溶液之前和染色之前浸泡水真的很好 - 我理想的是,这种过度湿度可能促进染料的运动进入缝合折叠的缝合。较短的浸泡时间可能会在将来产生更加清晰的结果。3)缝合不够紧 - 下次我将使用纱线塞子和更好的螺纹。

关于成品件上染料颜色的比较亮度,我怀疑在预洗阶段期间的角落太少了,因此在我染色之前未能去除织物上的所有“完成”。这种饰面会防止染料适当地粘在棉的纤维上。当然,在漂洗过程中,还有一个公平的“松散”染料从织物中释放出来。我也想知道非常湿织物中的水是否稀释苏打灰溶液过多,这也将降低染料的有效性。在水中浸泡较短,苏打水溶液中的浸泡较长可能有所帮助。电子邮件从Colourcraft(并看过实验#1的结果)后,我用适量的机械膏重新洗过剩余的未染色织物,因此现在应该接受染料更好。

Things to Try Next

  • 一种不同的标记方法,不能与苏打灰做出反应!
  • 少(不)浸入普通水中浸泡,苏打灰分较长
  • 冰下下的时间减少(最多8-12小时?)
  • “分阶段”染色过程 - 从较轻的染料开始,然后在〜8-12小时后加入第二次较深的染料(可能有额外的冰)?
  • 拿一个洗衣袋,用于保护洗衣机中的细腻物品,以减少织物切碎(在最后一次穿过洗衣机之后,染色的碎片相当严重打结和乱蓬蓬。
  • 尝试在具有长尺寸缝合长度的缝纫机上缝合一些设计 - 对所有技术不起作用,但可能是他人的实时节约

这让我很多思考,我不是几乎done with my experiments yet! I hope I can share more results with you soon.
