Daughter's first dyed silk


We used the Liquid Radiance colours again to dye this habutai silk scarf but a different technique this time. I wanted to make G's first dyeing experience easy and not too messy!


We dampened the silk and randomly scrunched. We stuffed it into a jar and squirted in turquoise, pink and yellow. We left this in the jar for 2 days, agitating here and there. Then we hung it on the line (unfortunately it rained so some of the colour ran a little) and heat set once dry.

She is quite happy with it and hasn't put it down yet!
