Brilliant Colours!

more scarves 2I love colour. Everyone that knows me knows that about me. Colour is very important to me. I like to wear it and I like to live with it in my home too. Though I have toned the vibrancy down a little bit in my home. Way back in my twenties and thirties I used to paint rooms over and over again. Probably at least once every year. I love how colour changes and enhances a mood or feeling.

So last week I purchased a whole lot of silk from Dharma Trading for nuno felting and whatever else I can think to do with it. I immediately called my Mom who has lots of experience with dying and loves to play as well with colours. She came by a few days ago and we had a full day of dying silks. It is a bit messy and hot since we always steam set the colours but we have a system that seems to work. I doubt we are doing things exactly correct according to an expert dyer but we have a lot of fun and the results are always pretty good. Plus, more importantly, the colours don’t run out of the silk when we are done!

Enjoy the eye candy!
