Hello again, I'm back with another question.

I was playing around with my cream mohair and Spruce Jacquard Acid dye again. I did a test to see what would happen if the fabric was half in the dye and half out of it. I really wanted to have a cream to light green to dark green effect but actually got cream to some sort of blue colour to dark green. Is this because the Spruce dye is a mix or just because of the wierd the way I dyed it?

If I try with a different colour dye (not a mix) will it do the same thing or will I get the look I want (ie a lighter shade of the same colour in the middle)?

Thanks for your time

Regards

Lisa

Hey Lisa,

Good question! The way I understand it the reason you got the blue in the transition place [i]does[/i] have to do with the fact that the Spruce is a mixed color. One way to deal with this is to embrace the randomness . Alternatively, you can stick with the unmixed colors and you'll get the dark to light to original transition you were looking for. You can find tech information for the Acid dyes [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/aciddye/technical.php"]here[/url].

Anet,

Aha! Thanks for confirming my suspicion. This world is all new to me, I'll get there in the end.... I hope. lol!

I'm a great fan of randomness so I'll find a use for the bit of fabric I've dyed already.

Off to study the tech info now. ;)
