Dyeing

I’ve finally taken the plunge and started dyeing background papers.

I’ve spent two evenings at it, and made about 30 dyed papers. The colours are wonderful and they mix beautifully.

 Evening one – deep turquoise, fig, slate blue and orange:   

This camping washing line is really handy. I just need to make sure the papers aren’t dripping when I hang them:

  

I love the way this one turned out:

 
Evening 2 –  violet, pine green, hot pink, turquoise, and I added orange to pep it up.

   
These coordinating background papers will be a great resource for future collages, and it’s a lovely relaxing process.
