Parfait Dyeing part 2

Rather than show the individual pieces this time I thought that it would be fun so see how the progression of Parfait dyeing. Upper left, deep yellow/lemon yellow dye. Upper middle, fuchsia. Upper right, turquoise. Middle bottom, Avocado. Bottom, charcoal grey/pewter dye.

Also in the same jar are: on the left, scarlet/Chinese Red dye. Upper middle, Palomino. Upper right, dark green. Lower middle, purple. Bottom right, black combo of #44 and #300 from Dharma.



The finished tree piece from an earlier post, April 12. I seem to have dropped the ball on the Passage Challenge. I'm racing against the weather and until I can no longer dye fabric in the garage I don't imagine that projects will be completed.It was 95 in the garage today. The portable AC was whining and so was I. Components: deconstructed screen printed background. Transfer and the red shapes are painted fusible web. There is a little machine stitching and the 9x11 inch piece was edge stitched.

Your colors are great and your tree is amazing. Not sure I know about deconstructed screen print, havent tried screen printing for that matter. Wish you lived closer, but not sure about that heat.

Love the tree. I have wanted to try the parfait dyeing for sometime. Is there a book? I know nothing about the dyes. Your dying is gorgeous.

You've got some beautiful effects with the parfait dyeing Gail. It's always a mystery to me how these wonderful effects happen.

Beautiful, beautiful tree!

Those colors are terrific! I like the palomino big time. You did a good job.

I don't know the first thing about dying or printing, but images, well that's different, and the image you have created of the tree with the fantastic colours is outstanding. Well done.
