Več svilenih šalov, potiskanih z rastlinami - More plant printed silk scarves

Spomladi sem potiskala precej svilenih šalov, a jih kar nisem in nisem poslikala. Zdaj vem, zakaj: ker je barve na svili tako težko dobiti - ali pa jih jaz ne znam :-( Očitno šale lažje potiskam z rastlinami kot pa fotografiram. Tehle nekaj mi je le uspelo posneti, pri drugih pa sem obupala. Mogoče se jih spet lotim kdaj kasneje ...
This spring I plant printed many silk scarves but didn't manage to take their photos. Now I know why: because it's so difficult to catch the colours on silk - or at least I can't do it properly :-( Obviously it's easier for me to plant print scarves than to take their photos. Finally I managed to take photos of these up here but then I despaired. Perhaps I'll try later ...

I think you are hard on yourself. I love the gentle nuances of your pieces and have been impressed with your dye pot journeys.

Čedno, čedno. Fotografije so čisto v redu, ni razloga za kakšno kritiko.

Jasmine, thank you for your kind words. I might really be hard on myself, but the scarves are sooo beautiful in reality and the camera just doesn't catch half of their beauty.
Tomaž, hvala za spodbudne besede.
Aibhilin, welcome at my blog, hope you enjoy it or even get some inspiration for your work.

I also love your scarves, how the colors flow in them, so beautiful!

I have been meant to comment earlier about the bark dyes, it is so frustrating to see that there is color in the bath, but it just doesn't attach to the yarn, like right now I have beautiful red alder bark bath... and the yarn is yellow:( I hope someday one of us figures out how to get the color from them!

Leena, I followed your attempts to get colour from tree barks onto wool and also your frustration.Now I have - beside others - a 50- gram skein of yarn dyed (read: dirtied) with birch bark extracted in alcohol. I wonder what plant to use to (over)dye it to make best use of it. Any suggestion?

Mami, jaz ti predlagam likanje, ker bodo nežni vzorci bolj jasna. Med nošenjem se itak zmečkajo, a so videti čisto drugače. Jaz zmečkanke nosim za večinoma enobarvne materiale.

Sicer pa - odlično!

Darja, bom pa res enega zlikala "za pokušino".
Alice, welcome to my blog. Hope you enjoy it!
