Ugly duckling 2

Here is another ugly ducling. I don't know anymore how I dyed this piece of fabric, but it did not turn out great:

After I sodasoaked it, I crunched it and placed it in this jar, it is in the middle. I placed ice cubes on it and a couple of teaspoons of rosebud procion dye powder.

This is how it came out. The colors are wonderful now, don't you think?

Although it had greatly improved, I wanted to make it even better. With loofah slices as stamp I started stamping using burgundy Lumiere textile paint.

And a second layer using a bigger slice of loofah and gold nugget metallic Bella paint with this as result:

Isn't it gorgeous?
