The results are in!.. *Eye Candy*

At long last, after a week of promises, I have the results of my dyeing to show you.

Autumn triangle

Here is the colour study triangle that I told you about. 28 fabrics (7 metres) made using 3 colours.

Colour Study Triangle Red-Yellow-Lichen

I did this in plastic bags with each bag having 6 spoons of dye in various combinations of the 4 colours. In this picture I have written the formula on some of the fabrics to show you how I did it - It seems more complicated than it is. If you want to know more just ask.

These are the dull colours. When I first pulled them out of the machine I figured that they were all duds (bad and would need overdying). As I ironed them however I found lots of sections that had some great shapes and colours and lines (and a Spider that B found! in one - an image not a real one...)

And here a some more pics just cause I love the colours....

I also did another dyeing batch today because I needed some more reds and purples. There's some interesting colours amongst that batch too.
