Dyeing - Part !



I have six colours in my Dye kit and using the bottles purchased on Ebay I've mixed up a medium strength of each.  Using dry calico which has been pre-soaked in soda ash each piece of fabric was scrunched, knotted, twisted or rolled into small containers and various combinations of coloured dye poured and / or squirted upon


Everything was left for more than 2 hours before being squeezed out and dipped into cold water and now it's drying - can't wait to see how it turns out.
