I heated up my walnut dye bath today to try and add a subtle mottling to two of the silk organzas I dyed recently. I scrunched each piece of organza into a ball, wrapped it in tulle and closed the bundle with an elastic.
Each bundle was soaked in plain water for 5-10 minutes to increase resistance to the dye because walnut dye tends to penetrate everywhere. I immersed two bundles in the dye for no more than a minute.
The picture is of wet silk and I may have gotten more brown than I really wanted. They are in the wash…..I’ll find out tomorrow.
