This fabric started as a very bright watermelon color. Too bold for my liking.
I used "nickel" (pro chemical & dye) procion dry powdered dye on top of a layer of ice. This piece is my favorite of my little experiments. You can still see how bright the watermelon color was on the right side of the fabric.
A close up view:
"Amethyst" dye. Too purple for me. Off you go to another dye bath...
"Wisteria" and a little "Amethyst". Not crazy about this one either:
