Over-dyeing Black and White Fabric
The cotton fabric was then soda soaked, dried, and painted with thickened Procion fibre-reactive dyes. It did not matter if a bit of dye was painted onto the black part as it did not show. This particular piece was painted by placing a variety of analagous colours on the brush at one time. The fabric was cured and washed in the regular way.
Dyeing a companion piece to coordinate with another fabric would be an excellent way of using an over-dyed black and white fabric. This piece looks fantastic as a border.
