I didn't mean to be a spoil sport.
I had a *very specific* question about a desired effect that I want to achieve. But, it's for the swap and I want it to be a surprise. (shhh)
If it turns out the way I envision it, I'll post pictures here with some instructions.
Now - if anyone wants to give me some quantities and formulas for dyeing, I'd appreciate that!
I will be dyeing 6 garments - all roughly the size of an adult t-shirt. I need two colors per garment...how much dye do I need?
Also, do I need synthrapol (?sp)? What else?
I know how to complete the *dyeing* process, I think.
I soak the garment in a soda ash mixture. How much should I buy and how do I dilute it (measurements?)
Then, I apply the dye to the areas, let it sit, covered, for a day or so, then rinse. Then I wash it in - cold? With synthrapol? How much? If there is more than one color is it going to bleed onto the white parts? When do I untie it? (when I rinse it out?)
