Primary color dyes with a twist
Mark E Malachowski
In this demo I will share:
How to blend one primary color dye into another to create a secondary color mixture.
How to blend or create a gradient of colors – a transition from one color to another.
How to use vinegar to blend and fade one color dye on the egg
How to lighten one dyed area with vinegar creating a transition of color from dark to light.
Participants in this demo will be encouraged to challenge themselves and experiment with this approach (a twist to the more traditional dyeing method) and to practice these dyeing, blending techniques on their own using only the primary color dyes.
Cost: $10 CAD per person
I am an artist and consider myself a painter but, like to explore and experiment with other mediums. I have been designing my batik eggs since 2002 and been hosting weekend Batik Egg Workshops in Cleveland for many years. Recently I’ve taken my workshops on the road with a couple “Pop Up Batik Egg Workshops”.
In October 2020 I will be hosting along with Linda Hupert the first annual “Pysanky On The River” batik egg event in Cleveland, Ohio.
