Winsome Color Effects Are Obtained by Dyeing Delightful designs sire easy to obtain on cloth by the simple method of tlie dj'o-bnth, points out Hnrrit W. Allard tn the Honsthold Magazine. She described three popnlnr methods of applying colors In patterns, tying, batik dyeing nnd shading. Of the fiist method, this expert tviltes: "Tiila Is done by tying, knotting, wrapping, gathering--!n any way --making It Impossible for the dye to aproad becntise of the thickness of the rontprlal. A scurf to be thus decorated rany have a knot fled In the center of each end and ?he entire piece dipped Into the dye-pot. Border srJjiea are rondo by winding a narrow strip of the niatorinl with cord or strips of cotton, !n this manner keep- Ing the dye from aifectlng that part of the fabric." Ilatlk dyeing, she continues, Is a long process but U Is the means of making delightful art pieces of Intricate design. Simple patterns are possible with little trouble cr work, but with careful bundling of the fabric, beau- t i f u l nnd expro^tve designs can be en i ted. By covfrlng a portion of the tcMile ^ I t h wax, (ho dye will color only the part left exposed. PornfUn, or a mixture of pavaflin and beeswax may be used. The simplest example of batik dyeing Is the crackle batik obtained by dlpplnj, the piece of cloth or paper Into molt cl paraffin. When It la cold crush {he piece In ymir binds to break tho \vax. A dip Into Uie dye bnth covers only tho?» places where thp \vix 1s broken. Drops of dye that cling to the wax Bhould be w l p p d off and the material allowed to stand u n t i l It Is dry. If two or more colors m e deslied, the entire (labile Is ngnin dipped Into the wax crushed, and then Into a second dyp-bath. The u n x Is removed f i o m the fabric by jilaclng It between two pieces of cJenn wrapping paper imd pressing It with 11 moderately hot iron. The paper ·will fi).corb the wax. If not the first, n sccind pressing wilt nsnnlly take ·out (ill of ibo wat. A gasoline bnth completely removes nil tiaces of it. More elaborate patterns nnd designs 'can be had eithei by painting a pat- torn with wax Jtnd a soft bmsh on the Bilk or cotton nnd carefully dye- Ing the remainder, or by covering the background with wax and leaving the pattern c\posed to the rtje. Two or more colois cun bo ned If the fabric not to be died lt covr-red with wax. Don't foiRPt to put your wax on both sides of the material.
