I am finally getting to something that I had hoped to do long before now.
I am dyeing a color family ala Carol Soderlund.
The colors I am using will be Tangerine, Scarlet and Turquoise.
I have spent the past few days reviewing the procedure until I understood it again.
I had stapled the labels to almost all the fabrics quite some time ago. I finished this and checked to be sure all the staples were secure and made sure everything was in their proper stack.
Today I worked on preparing my space. I had some cushioned floor mats put down in my dyeing area to making it easier on my feet and back. We exchanged the small table I had in that room for a longer one so I have more space to organize the process.
This afternoon and evening I went through the supplies for dyeing and straightened them and the shelves out.
I put the things I needed on the table or on top of the washer and dryer.
These are my 3 Wonder Washers. By using them to dye the swatches I will eliminate the continual stirring by hand.
I plan on dyeing 3 batches at the same time. I will need to do 18 batches to finish the color family.
I mixed the Tangerine dye I will be using tomorrow as it is best to mix it the day before.
This will not be a tutorial. I will just share my journey as I do this project.
