We spent the day gathering up supplies
for a class I am leading in February in
I keep plenty of microwaves in the closet
for teaching this class...
I pulled out the
MX Fiber Reactive Dye powders...
I cut up the color chips from the
Dharma MX Dye Poster
to label my dye powder jars.
I rounded up 3 dozen bottles to hold
the dye concentrates...
My preferred method of
mixing dye concentrates is
with a hand held electric mixer...
Lots of these in the thrift stores!
How can this be work when...
it is so pretty!
Most every color on the wheel is mixed up
as a dye concentrate for the upcoming class...
My Art Sister, Kathi, has mixed up
most of the dyes for class.
Now that's a true friend!
I use the Dharma MX Dye poster...
I cut up the dye color chips and tape them onto
the dye bottles.
This will help the students choose the colors
they would like to use.
We will need lots of measure containers, etc.
Soda Ash is our mordant...
The students will be dyeing:
Flour Sack Towels
This is what we will need to pack for the class...
plus the microwaves.
