Thank you all for being there. I will listen to the recording if it worked to share that too.
project #willowqueen Although this project has everything to do with the #liberationskirtchallenge it is also a broader art-project for me. So I post about it on the other website. But don’t be afraid, I will always share the link here so you won’t miss it. I also want to share the stories of my other clothes there, like my diarydress and my gardendress. The story of the skirt for Caitlin I will share here on the stories.
These are most of the comments made in the chat last tuesday while talking about Alabama Chanin and the way she stops the jersey from rolling/fraying with dye. We were looking for a natural way to stop fabric from fraying with a kind of natural “glue”
19:58:39 From Marijke Bongers : Alabama Chanin
19:58:59 From Marijke Bongers : Natalie Chanin
20:02:18 From Mieke van Zachts : You can find recipes on ‘verfmolen de kat’ for natural paint
20:03:08 From Mieke van Zachts : yes linseed oil works
20:03:24 From Mieke van Zachts : but also caseïne work good
20:03:45 From Monique van Gent Sidy : I know how to make paint from plants, but they are nor like the acrylics – they wash out
20:04:06 From Mieke van Zachts : its a milk product
20:04:49 From Monique van Gent Sidy : I have used atracanth and arabische gum top ma e paint and that works great
20:05:07 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Works great for stamping but does get soft
20:05:19 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Gum Arabic
20:05:19 From Margreet Krijgsman : behang plaksel?
20:05:42 From Mieke van Zachts : https://www.verfmolendekat.com/nl/
20:06:10 From Mieke van Zachts : https://www.verfmolendekat.com/en/
20:06:11 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Depends on waarvan de behang plaksel is gemaakt
20:19:23 From Mieke van Zachts : bees wax?
20:19:49 From Monique van Gent Sidy : NO beeswax for stamping
20:20:00 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Beeswax for rain!
20:20:35 From Monique van Gent Sidy : I have the best recipe for making natural stamping ink – ask me if you want to have
20:21:00 From Mieke van Zachts : the linseedoil is permanent
20:21:11 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Beeswax also for replacement of plastic
20:21:13 From Mieke van Zachts : I think so
20:21:26 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Linseeed oil makes me sick
20:22:08 From Mieke van Zachts : but linseed oil on fabric is also inflamable
20:22:17 From Monique van Gent Sidy : I made plastic wrap replacement with cotton and beeswax and coconut
20:25:00 From Monique van Gent Sidy : Yes watch flammable!
Hmmm that looks pretty disjointed in my case.... All I wanted to say is that one can stop-fraying with chemical/acrylic fabric printing dyes, as in the Alabama Chanin technique. Since AC always uses jersey - which does not much fray to begin with - I was looking for a method I could use on cotton sheeting that does not use chemical ink. Last year I learned to make printing ink with plant extracts, mordants, and Tragacanth Gum powder. But - since it is plant-based - it does not stop the fraying. It does come back to a beautiful hand (using a wheat bran afterbath). Fabric stays pretty stiff when I used beeswax to make bees wax wraps to replace plastic wrap or baggies - not something I'd wear in clothing in our hot weather.
What a present! Thanks @Saskia for sharing the name and story about Andrea Zitter
And besides that, look at the website I found about women!
