The ACID test


Yesterday I mixed up some new bottles of acid dye for Day 1 (Friday) of the Maine Event. I wanted to make sure they "worked" before people arrived. Here is the test...


Soaked in vinegar water


Ready for action


Ready to steam











I wish I had some spare scarves so I could play a bit but I want to have as many as possible available for the event.

  1. These pieces have gorgeous color. Too bad the Maine event is in Sept. I'm back to teaching this week...

  2. Wow, what great colors/mixtures! I've never tried acid dye or silk, but I can see why one would. . .

    1. They only take 5 minutes in the microwave.

  4. Love the color! I've not used acid dye before. What ratio of dye to water in the squeeze bottles did you use? Thank you.

    1. Too funny. I am in the midst of the Maine Event and just 5 minutes ago (6:30am) made a new bottle of yellow. It's 2 cups of boiling water - MUST be boiling _ and 1, 2, or 3 teaspoons of Washfast (dye) powder for light, medium or dark dye.
