A 'bigger' tray for tray dyeing
A new post from Nienke:
I really loved the long, small pieces I made with the cutlery tray, but the only problem is, it's so small. So I decided to build myself a giant cutlery tray with my silk painting rack and plastic.
Actually, it was Vicki Welsh great post A new dyeing tool in august 2012 which was saved in my favorites, who inspired me to make this:
Same procedure, fabric sodasoaked, orange dye solution at the bottom, fabric placed on top of it, pouring blue dye solution over it, pushing it for about 2 minutes and leaving it for one hour:
Once you start rinsing, you can't believe that it's not completely mud, but that's a good surprise!
And after ironing:
Love the little details in the fabric!
Happy dyeing and thank you Vicki for this great idea, adjustable one-time-trays.
