Update on Dyeing etc

Plastered and painted with Koh-i-Noor Ink

Managed to get my two samples

(a) painted with Koh-i-Noor dye based inks, and

(b) space dyed.

Not very happy with the colours, but as samples they will serve my purpose.

It is interesting to see the difference between the reproduction of the colours through using a camera and a scanner.

I was disappointed with the result of the dye on the various threads I used.  I thought they would take the dye in different ways producing several shades of the same colour.  I suppose I could try overdyeing the piece again?

  1. I am full of admiration for your energy ! Are the samples for a project or just a play ? I like the koh-i-noor one best though that could just be the repro x
