    More "Fun with Fabric Dyes"

    Day two of our fabric dyeing adventure...

    This is a 48" x 37" tray I put together this morning that holds a full yard of fabric for dyeing. It is set up to be lined with dropcloth plastic for easy cleanup. ;-) The fabric with dye on it is the deep purple and fuchsia with a salt resist sprinkled on.

    And here is a closeup of the result~This one was FUN...sprinkling on salt and then squirting on dyes wildly!

    These are all the same dye-bath of Teal using a low-water immersion gradient method.

    (The colors of the teal pieces look much better in person!)

    the fabrics are beautiful...something I think I would like to get into but I'm afraid to as my sewing and quilting already takes up so much space....but looking at your beauties sure makes me start to rethink

    I love your set up. Every thing is outside.
    Was this may for a special project?

    They are lovely. I admit that I still have 4 fq that I hand dyed 20 years ago. I've never been able to cut them. I've tried and can't do it.

    I like your setup!!!

    These are really great. I can't wait to take the fabric dyeing class in Raleigh next week. We are supposed to use different techniques on silk. It sure looks like you are having fun.
