Silk Dyebath

I needed to dye some silk for the website, and I wanted to play with tray dyeing, using just 3 colors. I chose the warm version of the primaries (dyes are different than crayons!) and used Royal Blue, Scarlet and Golden Yellow.

Here are the "before" pictures, one scrunched tightly, and one pleated. You'll see that the results are amazingly different. I'll try to post the "after" pictures tomorrow - it's all washed out, but needs to become one with my mangle (a.k.a. super iron) before photography. Kind of looks like mud, you say? Just wait to see!!
