Back in the Dye Room
This week I am in the dye room. Last week it was hard to stay inside and cut kits with temperatures in the 70s,
so when it snowed over the weekend I thought I wouldn’t be tempted to head outside. However,
this morning the snow was gone. It was tough – but I stuck to it and headed to the studio.
then dyed blues, purples and black. The colors were beautiful!
What dyeing has done to the the surfaces in the dye room -not so beautiful.
I am pretty sure that at one time this stainless steel sink was shiny and unstained. This is something I don’t remember and, in case you were concerned, I have no plans to use any elbow grease to restore it. Today it has hints of purple and blue, tomorrow it will be a strange hue of orange and left over blues. Every time I dye its a new color. 🙂
Tomorrow it is back to the studio and the dye room. Hoping for it to be an orange and brown sorta day. Who knows I may get to the red! And I hear I won’t be tempted to go outside – it is supposed to snow. :-/ March, it seems, will be coming in like a lion.
And next week? Well, I am expecting several UPS deliveries so it may be a while before I get out of the studio. In fact, it may be a while before I do much more the cut and count. But hey – I like what I do and the purples I dyed today were absolutely beautiful! And just in case you are wondering what my dyeing technique is – you will find it here: Dyeing – my Way
