In theory, overdying the marbled fabric worked great. In practice though, I should have had a few colors of dye. This red is too bloody for what I had in mind. A clever girl would have dyed two pieces in the dark red, two in bright red, and two in orange. Or maybe, started with orange, and if it didn’t work, gone progressively darker. Of course, I’ve never been much of a tester when it comes to this kind of thing. I do tend to throw caution to the wind. Sometimes it works, and sometimes I fall flat on my face.
On teh other hand, I overdyed a commercial fabric and two other hand dyes with a dark peaty green at the same time and they turned out just how I had hoped they would. I have discharge plans for those, and now at Gerrie’s oh so wise suggestion, I’ll try discharging these too. Well, maybe I’ll start with just one!
