This veil turned out darn cool. I dyed the whole thing gold, then stuffed 6″ along the edge into a plastic bag and double-tied it. The veil was then suspended over the black dyebath with an improvised dowel-rod-plus-spring-clamp setup and dyed in Jacquard’s black acid dye. This produced a lovely velvety black, and suspending the veil meant no black sneaking into the resisted area… I’ve had some troubles with dye making its way into a section protected by a plastic bag, even if I pre-wet carefully. But… Rube Goldberg to the rescue. The commissioner is quite pleased with it.
