This particular piece looks like a face , at least I thought so!
This assortment was in greens. I do a lot of applique and these pieces are perfect for leaves and stems. The color doesn't really show up here very well but it is a pretty mossy green.
The fabric is put in plastic bags with the dye and then laid in the sun to begin the curing process.
The dyes which are in powder form are mixed in an area by themselves since each speck of dye is VERY powerful. Gloves and masks are essential when mixing up the colors.
