Greens

I did lots of dyeing today. Unfornatelthe reds didn't want to co-operate as I wanted them to, but the greens came out lovely and intensely coloured.It's annoying that the chlorine content of the water has such an effect on the reds and purples and browns as well.

I tried dyeing my village scene and I think I may have ruined it- the colours are too dark so that you can't see the drawn textile ink image. I suppose I could bring it out again with a bright coloured thread- but I am a bit annoyed with myself for being so heavy handed with the dye.Otherwise I willhave to draw the image again.

The fabrics are beautiful, how do you get the textures in the colours if its not a trade secret? I have done something similar with poly. bag dyeing but not as lovely as yours

Your forest fires are very realistic and dramatic.
