Antho and I have been doing a lot of tie-dye recently. These have all been posted in our Etsy shop so if you see any you like be sure to check it out! We’re both quite pleased with how we’ve been progressing through experimentation and practice. ^_^ Hope you like!
It’s been awhile but now that it’s starting to warm up again Antho and I made some tie-dye the other day. I’m quite pleased with the results! I’ll be posting them on Etsy in the next few days.
Start by folding your shirts into the designs you want to work with. We did 10 shirts so we’d have 5 each, but Antho accidentally folded two together and made duplicate shirts. Good to know that works, though! 😀
Make your dye…
All lined up and ready to go!
Let the dye soak in for at least 6 hours…
Once rinsed of excess dye and washed, you’ll be left with the final results.
Some were done as gifts so those are already gone, but I’ll be posting the other’s on Etsy soon!
Every Monday night We are the Music Makers open mic night that takes over The Beat coffeeshop in Downtown Las Vegas. Hosted by our good friend Diego, you’re guaranteed a wide cross section of the many music talents inhabiting our city. From tie-dye clad Hamlet rapping newbies to seasoned pros belting out covers of classic bluesy tunes there’s something for everyone, and all are welcome.
It’s pretty groovy. The coffee and grub aren’t half bad, either. If you’re of a particularly stoney mindset, give the Slap & Tickle sandwich a try; peanut butter & homemade jam with smoked bacon and pickled jalapeños on simple white bread. It’s an unholy medley of sweet, smokey, savoury and your forever tainted childhood.
Antho and I rolled out with our light show, 710 Visuals, illuminating the event’s proceedings. We had a lot of fun and the music was ever-so-delightfully coffee house chic, which means I felt like whipping out a sketchbook and doodling most of the evening. Next time, sketchy, next time.
We’re definitely going to be doing more of these in coming weeks!
I’m looking forward to it. ^_^
Have you ever been to an Open mic night?
Did you perform?
I don’t think I’d ever be brave enough ^^;;
Drawing is kind of a quiet, solitary thing, compared to music, isn’t it?
But then again, Bob Ross made a career on his happy little trees, so there is potential there.
Anyway…if you’re local, you should certainly give it a shot!
Everyone’s very friendly and accepting, so don’t be shy.
This year we were asked to provide visuals for a private Halloween house party orchestrated by Germ of Ossum Possum, and we obliged. Live music, free beer, festive costumes and scary movies are generally a winning combination.
Naturally, Ossum Possum performed, as did Sojourner, and I’ve got plenty of videos after the cut for you!
The entire house was decorated in the Halloween spirit.
