The Good and The Bad

Thursday, January 21st, 2016


There you have it, an evenly died turquoise, accomplished by doing bucket dyeing and stirring and stirring and adding salt to the water.


While I was at the studio doing the bucket dyeing and stirring every 5 minutes for an hour, I decided to try using jet black to dye the dilutive way. Unfortunately, I miscalculated the amount of dye concentrate by 8 tbs!! I used 4 to start and should have used 12. I got some interesting results, anyway. Some of this will get overdyed.


That piece on the left was when I wondered what would happen if I mixed better black with jet black. But, I grabbed my blue concentrate by mistake! It is a very nice blue. I like it.

Waiting for our next assignment which will be dyeing the color wheel. That will be fun.
