I had this bin in my kitchen to load up all the thickened dyes in quart containers so I decided to use it for the coverlet as well.
I have been searching for the original photo I had taken but you'll have to be happy with this one.
Too pale for me and too much white/light areas. I have a need for color.I added a few quartz of warm water.
Then a scant gallon of left over basic blue (about a pint of concentrate), maybe a quarter cup of intense blue and as much again of fuchsia then the warm water I rinsed the bottle with to bring it close to a gallon. I waited about 15 minutes for the dye to find and migrate into the fibers then...
A gallon of warm soda ash solution
Lots of dyeing to do!ReplyDelete
