Going For Gold Becomes Shibori

During the Olympics I challenged the members of the Welcome Mat to go for gold and dye up great yellows or golds without a recipe. I gave them lots of hints and and made a couple of videos with pro chem and majic carpet dyes.

I had a few samples left from those videos I wanted to make into treasures. I shiboried them via spot dye with blue and red violet on one side of the bricks and seal brown on the other.
The top one was over a gold, the bottom one over yellow.
You might ask what could these be used for... last evening I saw the sun through trees and watched the branches disappear and reappear from the brilliance... I wonder if this wool would do some of that soft edge work...

If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull.
