yuzen try-out

yuzen dye technique on silk, the first try out of a design on silk. I am currently mainly trying out the technique in general, it''s is interesting to see the dye do the work on it's own. instead of sketching a design I simply started working somewhere and went with it from there.

Yuzen is a japanase textile decoration technique in which a piece(usually a bolt meant for a kimono)of silk is treated with rice starch to create a pattern which is then dyed with silk dyes. The silk dye would flow in all directions without the starch(personal experience) with this you can create light and flowing designs.
