Mandala With Layers Of Ice Dye

When I dyed this the first time the colors looked washed out. I decided it was worth a try to dye it a second time and I saved it.

This is what it looked like before I redyed it. The center was pale and weak.
If you look closely not only are the colors more vibrant but there is a pattern in the center that wasn’t there the first time.
That is one of the wonderful things about dyeing fabric. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
And when you try again you may find “Love is lovlier, the second time around!”

I prefer the lighter one. Each person has their own view. Your designs are beautiful.
