I settled on the 3 primary colors just to see how they would interact. Using Procion MX dyes I put a yard each into red, blue and yellow. Wringing the fabric out slightly I laid the red down on a covered surface. Next came the blue and then the yellow.
|The yellow background is super pale but the soft blue/purple colors seeping through are interesting. I plan to over dye with the same yellow to get those blue/purple colors to pop a bit more.|
|Snooze alert... boring... same-o... same-o!|
|The blue bleeding into the red was kind of fun. It created a soft purple hue meandering around the fabric!|
I would try this technique again but perhaps with just 2 layers. If you try it yourself let me know what you learn and how your project came out!
