Taking a break

For once, I have a pretty good excuse why I haven’t been doing too much dye work… I’ve been taking some time off from it to work on other projects. For example, steampunk costuming for Teslacon. (If you’re unfamiliar with steampunk, you could look at some photos here – my costuming leans toward the Victorian reenactment side. 

This year’s Teslacon involves a trip to the moon as part of the “story” of the convention. Since there’s always a fabulous formal ball, I really hope to dye up some silk that is reminiscent of outer space for my ball gown. Some of my earlier silk dye work looked more like the Milky Way and I’m trying to remember how I did some of it.
