|First layer of MXdye screened on from a photo silk screen.|
|this dark green will nearly disappear. Note to self avoid old dye especially in summer.|
|Again the greens are going to fade to olive.|
|third layers for both scarves.|
|Was quite pleased with the colors. But this was before wash out.|
Unfortunately after I washed them out I lost almost all of the deep greens. NEVER USE OLD DYE.
So I rolled them up and over dyed using acid dyes. An exciting new approach for me.
So it was acid dye to the rescue. This one was edge dyed by rolling it up and only dyes the outer edges. I lost the lovely orange stripes but gained some great blue depth.
|Finished scarf draped you can see that the deep green of the center linear print became an olive drab.|
|Edge and dip dyed Cabbage rose wrapped as a shawl|
I am a real fan of edge shading /ombre and love the added depth the acid dyes created.
