Dye like you mean it

Cassie brought over some silk veils and all the wonderful tools you'd need to turn them from plain, white silk into WOW silk.
We picked four random colors and set to bundling and dyeing the fabulous fabric.
For the first one, I picked this wonderful chocolate color and combined it with raspberry.
The overall effect is wonderful.  Raspberry truffle!
Next, I set my sights on this blue.
Then I mixed the remainder of the blue with some chartreuse.
The final application was of the chartreuse.
Silk makes it fun as it has a tendency to shift a little when you're bundling it up to dye.
I love the effect, though. 

I may have to take up belly dancing in order to put these to proper use.
