When I dyed these silk scarves the orange was far to strong for almost anyone to wear.
I decided to overdye them with a turquoise. I didn’t have turquoise dye so I mixed my own.
No matter how much of the blue dye powder I added to the yellow it still was very green so I went with that.
It did tone them down somewhat but in the photo it still looks like a VERY strong orange.
I have a feeling the yellow in the mixed dye also did it’s work on the original orange.
These two scarves started out with a much paler orange as I used spent dyes to dye them orange.
I did a clamp resist on each of them and I am happy with them. They DID turn out very green.
Silk takes the dye quite differently than cotton and I will be sharing the cottons I over dyed soon.
