Colours from the dye pot…

So we’ve been playing with colour…

 

This madder is blowing my mind! This is it hitting the dye pot:

Here’s a close up – a more accurate image of the colour. It’s got a more blue undertone than the above picture would have you believe. It’s not as hard to get a more true red with Aquarelle as with ground root.

 

It’s a bit pink for me so I think it’ll go back in to the pot today with either indigo, Himalayan Rhubarb or… hmmm… Lac would be interesting too. Fortunately I have four skeins so I could easily do one of each…
