Dyes Used
Thought I would share the dyes I used. I mixed them in 12 oz plastic "party" cups (the opaque ones) that I had left-over from my class with Heide Stoll-Weber. I mixed about 3-4 ounces of each. I used:

Rust Orange (Dharma)
Sunrise Red (Dharma- will strain next time)
Maroon Brown (Dharma)

The rest are from ProChem:

Cantaloupe
Hot Chocolate
Sage
Stormy Sky (my favorite)
Terra Cotta
Barn Red (also will strain next time since I don't know which of the reds was the one that left blotches)
Black 602A
Burnt Orange
Chocolate Brown (not the same as Hot Chocolate)
Havana Brown (a greeny-brown that I just love)
Dusty Purple

My goal was to get very earthy colors that look like rocks, shaded rocks, rocks at dusk, etc. The result was too "tie-dyey" for the project I wanted them for but that's ok, I can still use them for other projects. However, now I need to make the fabrics I need for the current project. Thankfully the majority I already have; it's just the rocks I need!

teri...off to find the light box to make my transparency for the pattern

    I can confirm that Barn Red is a real b**** for blotches, splotches and general bad behaviour.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
