Colouring of Materials - bonus.


On this occasion, I dyed all the little pieces in plastic bags,
them sewed them together. I rinsed them several times
and the water seemed to be pretty well clear.
As they were drying on pieces of kitchen roll, I noticed
that some colour was coming out of them onto the papers.
During subsequent dyeing adventures, I re-used the same
papers but dried different coloured dyed samples on them.
I ended up with some lovely random effects which I'm sure
will come in useful in the future.
Even better, they all split into three layers, each of which is
slightly different. Oh, joy!
We all love an unexpected bonus, don't we?


This is a general view of the papers.


I've taken close ups of some of my favourites.
