Kool-Aid Dye Experiment #001

Kool-Aid Dye Experiment #001
Originally uploaded by C4G.
My first experiment in varigated dying using kool-aid. This is Orange and Lemonaid koolaid colors.

I spun a sample of silk and alpaca blended fiber (about 2 yards worth), wrapped around my hand, tied, then dipped each end into a concentrated mixture of each color (one packet to 6 ounces water).

Zapped in the microwave for 1 minute, took out, dunked again.

Zapped again, took out, filled with water (carefully), zapped again.

Then I took out the fully hot batch and let it sit for five minutes before rinsing in hot water and winding onto my home-made PVC skien winder. I love the varigation of orange and yellow!!

Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
