Does Anyone Need Easter Eggs Dyed?

Do not adjust your monitors, the color you actually see here is the color that these are dyed. Little bright, huh? I don't think I've gotten used to the colors quite yet.

A few months ago, I did some hand dyeing for a Surface Design swap. In one of my experiments, I created a beautiful neon green (that you've seen in quite a few of my pieces). I recently ran out of that fabric & thought that I should dye some more. I didn't document my findings the first time because I really wasn't concerned what colors I used to get what. Well now I wished I did. I do remember it being turquoise & a yellow, but I couldn't remember if it was Golden Yellow or Sun Yellow. I used Sun Yellow above & I don't think that was the right yellow to use. Think I will be going back to the studio & trying Golden Yellow with Turquoise.


This is what I did with my left over Sun Yellow & Turquoise after I did my "make green" run. (It's screams bright too!!)

WOW. OK - ya know what? I love those!!! I especially love your leftover piece, it is simply gorgeous. When you try golden yellow, stick one more piece in there after the last "mostly yellow" piece - if you were doing 50cc yellow to 10 cc blue in that last piece, make it 55/5 - you might be closer to lime (or at least it would be interesting to see!).
