Dyeing Today!

I said I was going to do it, and I did.  But now I am out of silk so I have to order some more before I can continue dyeing.

I dyed some solid colors but then I decided to teach myself space dyeing.  Since these affinity bracelets can use warps of different colors, I thought it would make sense to have one warp with a bunch of colors just for fun.  It was successful.  I surprised myself.  And so much fun.  Got out my paint brushes and painted the silk.

This is what I got:

The dye pots!

The dyes.

My first attempt at dye painting.

Two dye painted warps cooling off in some water.

The solid colors and three painted silk warps drying on the porch.

Close up of my day's work.
