Colorway Inspiration

At some point I want to dye some fiber in the colors of the sky in this picture.  This was our sunset last night as I was getting ready to head into the gym.  I love color theory and it’s interesting how in comes into play in nature.  For example, intensely beautiful sunsets and rises are normally characterized by the colors of gold, orange and sometimes even reds reflected on the clouds in the sky while the sky itself is either purple, blue or a combination of the two depending on the saturation of color.  The naturally occurring complementary colors are striking.

  • I’ve been thinking about dyeing alot myself lately. Gotta start looking for crock pots at the thrift stores!

    • I use kool-aid and food coloring and haven’t gotten into the professional acid dyes yet. I don’t really have a space to work with them away from kids, pets and the kitchen. I guess if I used a crock-pot to do some acid dyes I could do it out on our back deck since I could just plug it in outside. I could keep the dyes in the garage out of the way.
