I decided to get into dyeing fabrics again. I had a bunch of old dye concentrates in my refrigerator, but most were way too old - I'm talking about 12 months or so. The golden yellow was fine, the blues and the reds were not. So I mixed some more - just enough concentrate for a few yards of cotton. I did enjoy myself. I just love opening up the washer after the rinsing part to see the results. I am working on values. I dyed yardage for future portraits so these were not very mottled. I do enjoy "tie dye" effects but not this time around.
