– 100% cotton cloth
– batched: 10yds hot washed (no rinse) with 3/4c soda ash, then tumble dried with low heat
– image painted onto cloth without soda water
– minimal agitation in the tub dye bath (lifted fabric and added salt in stages)
– soaked for an hour with just salt before adding soda for last fifteen minutes soak

produced this:
The orange came out lovely. I wish the blues and greens had come out a little more brilliantly, but I think that they would appear more brilliant if the background (tub bath) color was darker?

We’re getting somewhere, tho’ =)

In the end, also, I will have a bunch of patches to play with. Wondering what I should do with them…
