Overdyeing




I had a fun day of overdyeing yesterday. Overdyeing is where you take a piece of fabric and dye over it. I used some pieces from my second batching of primary colors and overdyed them to a brighter yellow. On the Golden Yellows (top left) I used 1 Lemon Yellow; (top right) 2 Bright Yellow.On the orange yellow (bottom left) I used 1 Lemon Yellow and on the Grayed Yellow (bottom right) 2 Bright Yellow. Very interesting seeing the different results.
