I have been dyeing all of my own fabrics lately but in a sort of hit and miss fashion. I decided the colours I needed for a certain project and tried to dye to order. DUMB idea! Anyway, over the past few days, since finishing the Red Iris ( posted earlier) I have been making a concerted effort to do some serious dyeing in a more orderly manner and to end up with a good variety of colours and values. To that end, I have been ordering dyes from G&S Dyes in Markham, ON and from Pro Chemical and Dye in MA , USA. YUMMY!!!I have some delicious colours now and am having a major ball. Here is some of what I have been doing.
I will post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com Drop in there and see what is in progress this week!I will post the new colours when they are finished later tonight.
|A nice lively dark made with Chocolate, Eggplant and Warm Brown|
|The darks so far- not TOO dark!|
|The lights and mediums with an emphasis on greens .|
|The greens alone.|
I am currently working on some new colours . I cannot WAIT to see how they turn out.
