Dyeing silk

Silk doesn’t dye like cotton. I forgot that. 

In the past I have used silk paints, occasionally used procion dye, but yesterday I got out a handful of pre hemmed silk scarves and dyed then using acid dyes. I don’t consider all of these a success, although I do like a couple.  More practice needed me thinks

  1. You dyed something green? Wow. Wait until Diane gets on! I like them and even if you don’t like them as scarves they can be cut for art pieces.
