More Dyeing in the summertime

theresamARTinDye5

I use the book Color by Accident as a guide for dyeing in mason jars in the summer time. I was introduced to this by Judy Gula at Artistic Artifacts who regularly has Dye Days at her place.  I prefer to dye at her warehouse (big space!) but sometimes I dye at home on my own. Taking advantage of the heat we’re having, which helps set the color, I have dyed some fabrics and tea bag papers. Like the name of the book implies, the results one gets are not repeatable because it doesn’t require a scientific, exact approach. It’s just right for me, and I always get results that are varied and pretty. Different textures and fabric types make for some neat surprises.
