I spent a day with my friend Beth, doing low-water immersion dyeing with Procion MX dyes. We started by dyeing 6 yards each with sun yellow, fuchsia, mixing red, turquoise, and intense blue. We then over-dyed the fabrics with the gray and black colors you can see in the pile on the right. The left pile shows the greens we got from over-dyeing the yellow with the various grays and blacks.
The fuchsia and mixing reds.
The turquoise and intense blues.
These fabrics were dyed with a gradation of navy blue and a constant 2% solution of yellow and mixing red.
We each made 44 yards of fabric. For more information on the process, see Beth's blog at www.quilterb-bethsblog.blogspot.com.
