SHIBORI: pressure test

[posted by Michala]

Pressure is the ratio of force to the area over which that force is distributed. [Wikipedia]

The idea was to test regular and distributed pressure
and its influence on the shibori pattern

By applying different
pressure on each of the samples
3 different patterns came along

Regular pressure [tied on both sides with same force]

Intensity of the pattern was influenced by
the folding of the cloth

Side pressure [emphasized on the right]

Tested on wool

Long, mild pattern

Side pressure [no additional force on opposite end]

Shorter, more intense pattern
