This first picture is an over view of the Rust-Tex Dye Studio. The rest of the pictures show close ups of different places in the studio with explanations of the important things pictured. Here is a close up of what I always keep on the table. Spray bottles of water, vinegar, and tannin, a plastic gallon bottle with a handle to pour water on bottles wrapped up to make trees, or mesa or galaxies, the container of "sludge", measuring cups and spoons, and a table top garbage bucket.
Here are the bottles and copper wire I use for bottle wraps. I can't wait to use that big blue wine bottle. I sometime feel the need to add to my repertoire.
Here are the metal shelves someone put out in their trash last summer and I dragged home much to my DH's chagrin. I knew I needed a set of shelves and I didn't mind a bit that the metal shelves were rusty. They hold rust dust, rust flakes, new and used coffee filters, weights, clamps, and rubber bands. All the things I need to keep handy for rust dyeing. The shelves also provide a leaning place for the foot from a claw-footed bathtub someone once gave me for rust dyeing.
Here is where I filter rust dust from the first rinse of bottle wrap fabrics. And below the picnic bench are the iron pots that I use when dyeing stuff black.
And finally here are the things I set up today. come back tomorrow and see what I got!!!
