Dyeing Cotton

So as I continue my cotton dyeing adventure form my post several days ago,  I found that the color and texture of the surface worked reasonably well.  The sharp fold left in the fabric from the bolt worked to mirror the texture I put there with the crinkling in the dyepot, creating a sort of “inkblot” effect.  The marbling or mottled texture was what I had hoped for, and I think it was so effective only because of the length of time left in the dyepot ( about 10 hours).

The hue turned out a bit cooler than I had hoped, so I decided to mix another dyebath with just red this time, and try to overdye it.
