Wowza! Look at those colors!

I'm on a fabric dyeing craze lately. I've been dyeing fabric almost non stop and I'm loving it!

I found a new to me book on hand dyeing fabric in my personal library. I pulled it out to have a look and was surprised that I hadn't remembered that I had this book. Reading through it I found a new and simpler method and just had to give it a try!

I pulled out the very last of my white fabrics and ripped it into just enough FQs to do what I wanted to do.

First up was a 12 step color wheel. I choose bright yellow, fuchsia and turquoise dyes. The method is straight forward and I was surprised that I made less mess than usual.

I love the colors and the texture I get in my fabrics.

At the back of the book, author Linda Johansen gives some ideas for specialty dyeing techniques. These were fun. But I was rushing and didn't take as much time as I would have liked to take. AND I was being lazy and maybe a bit frugal and was using up dye that was already mixed.

This piece was folded accordion style into a square and dipped in fuchsia and black dyes.

This piece was twisted and dye was poured over. A bit like tie dye....I'll be playing more with this method later.

I have 2 black dyes. I sprinkled the powdered dye on each half and then sprayed with water. I wanted to see what undertone colors were in the blacks.
