Painted Warp Weaving

Painted warp weaving is visually similar to traditional warp Ikat weaving, both techniques exhibit a feathered edge where the pattern changes and both have the design programmed into the yarn before the first shuttle is thrown.  Traditional Ikat however is done using resist dyeing, while painted warp has become easier to achieve with the advent of easily-thickened, stable dyes that can be directly applied to areas of the warp.  Click through the above images for more details of the process and a close look at my fish series.
