More Shibori

I continued with the shibori action yesterday and overdyed the circles red. I am trying to make something that resembles various cells in the blood stream, including WBC's, RBC's and platelets. I tried stitching the platelet shape with thread, gathering it, throwing it into a black dyebath, then rinsing it and throwing it into an orange dye bath and I thing it held it's shape really well. I'm not sure if I like the black background, but I think if I try it in a color, I would have to go in and paint the shapes, and I think the black gives it a nice definition.

I'll LOVE the circle effect and can't wait to try it in my next dyeing session.
