Fun weekend of dyeing




Had to show you these two parfaits that I did over the weekend. When I first learned how to dye (many years ago), I worked a lot in the colors of the first photo. In this past year, I've grown to love other colors as well, like in the second photo. I have to say that my intentions for the orange parfait were to be a spiral. No spiral, but I think it turned out quite nicely.

I used the left over Golden Yellow & Turkish Red from my "make orange" study.

Wished you could see the colors just a little bit better, it's a really subtle gradation from the golden yellow (looks orange) to the turkish red.

I like these. I'm very much a blue/purple/green person and I try to work with other colours as well but I'm always drawn to those first. I like the orange it looks so vibrant.
