Dyed and gone to heaven

 Tray dyeing 1 001

Tray-dyeing at Morley this week, so lots of guddly mess with precision application of  the Procion MX dyes.  The piece above is cotton, dyed with a mixture of blues, lemon yellow and a tiny bit of black.  Beautiful painterly effects with some detail shown below.

Tray dyeing 1 002

Trying to get a purple was not successful, and resulted in an overpowering magenta.  Not shown here yet, as I think I’ll try overdyeing it.

  1. Is that the scrunching up on a drain pipe method? It looks great!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
