Colour me beautiful


This 'renewable clothing' project by Feranado Brizio reminds me of the time I left the tops off my markers in a drawer and the ink bled into the wood. "By placing colored felt-tip pens in the pockets of the dress its appearance changes over time. within an hour - to one and a half hours the colored ink bleeds into the fabric and creates a one-off design for each occasion. the owner can then clean the dress and color it in a different way for each time they wear it." I have some doubts about the practicality of the project, but it is a very nice concept with very beautiful results.

That seems like a waste of ink...! But it's such a great idea, and I just think the ink should be permanent...
