experiment report

Well, the experiment with direct application of activated dye on silk produced a rather pretty veil, but very clearly I did not thicken the dye enough. The colors wandered rather more than I wanted them to.

The black test was a major oops moment… the veil had already been dyed once in a soda ash bath for quite a long time. It apparently “used up” all its dye sites, since the black dye I applied made NO impression on the veil at all! It entirely rinsed off. Really kind of weird experience.

I’ll try again in a different situation sometime.
