First, I made some blue/green pieces, which are always my favorite.
On the bottom piece, that was directly in contact with the sifter, there are grid lines. You can see them on the right-hand side of this next picture. I hope they survive the washing out.
I also did some pieces with a mix of blue, red and black dyes. Most of the red seemed to disappear during the dyeing. The black, which looked like it was going to turn into a deep purple, also didn't show up too much in the final product.
The very magenta piece is an old table cloth that I was given. Since it was in very bad shape, I decided to dye it, and see what I can do with the remnants. It looks good here.
But, it seems to have lost a lot of color when I rinsed it out. Do you think that could be because it is not 100% cotton like I thought it was?
I had a visit from this guy (again) when I was working with the dyes. Amazingly, he went home wearing the same orange coat that he arrived in!
