It was such a warm sunny day yesterday that I thought I'd take a bit of time to work on another color exercise. I decided to break out my new digital scale, mix up some dye concentrates, and dye a color wheel. This is the first time I've had the chance to dye fabric since my workshop with Carol Soderlund, so I had to refresh my memory on how to adjust the dye powder and liquid amounts to the weight of the fabric.
Look, here's the scale in action!
I batched everything in the sunshine on the patio...
And by the end of the evening, I had this!
I threw in a bit of perle cotton thread with each piece of fabric, so I actually was able to make this.
I'm working through these color exercises to remind myself of basic color principles... and it's fun and very reinforcing. And it was a lovely way to spend some time on the sunny patio!
