A Dyeing Day
The yellow was one of the fresh dyes. Now I know how long I shouldn't keep left overs.
I really like the way the poppies seem to float on the back ground.
I soaked the screen prints in Soda Ash for about 30 mins then put them into snap lock bags, poured in some dye and zipped the bags shut. I left them for about 2 hours and then zapped them gently in the microwave (medium power for 2 mins).
Next time I'll use all fresh dyes!
The process worked ready well! Aren't they the yummiest colours! I have a one metre length of dyed fabric to match (dyed under the skeins)
