half circle ombre 2

I’m still fooling around with these color-to-color (or as I think of them, bucket to bucket) ombre dyes. I’m doing the math and timing things carefully, but although they are pretty they are not quite as smooth as I’d like. I’d love to make gradations as smooth as the items here, but I’m not quite sure how.

    I've never tried gradations on silks, but my secret is just very slowly pulling the fabric out of the vat while simultaneously very slowly adding dye. I've been meaning to try it on playsilks, but just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll definitely share some tips when I do, though 😉
