Jan 2011 Snow Dyes
This is a picture of the whole 1-yard piece. I used wine and New Black on mercerized cotton.
Here is the last bit of snow before it melted through the fabric. The fabric is sitting on a screen stretched over a bin. On the left, I used Havanna Brown and Black Cherry squirted on the snow in a plaid pattern. On the right, I used Wine and New black squirted on the snow in overlapping circles.
Here's a detail of the havanna brown and black cherry. I figured the havanna brown would split into some interesting colors when I did the dye fractionations study.
I threw a couple crumbled fabrics in the bin underneath to see what color I'd get from the drips down effect. Not bad. I was surprised to see more black on the fabrics in the catch bin down below.
Kilt Green in a separate bucket.
