Blue salt

A scarf using salt to create the design. I've shown my frame in a previous post, but here is another example of the pattern that is produced by sprinkling rack salt on the wet dye.  As the salt attracts the moisture, the color moves with it. And the blue looks so nice, very rich.  It looks like it should have texture just from the color pattern.  Since it is a steam set dye it is washable also.
