It was a great dye in Lawrenceville, fans! Who knew open-air fiber work could be so exhausting. I could barely clap my paws together for Bo. The votes are in and painting the fabric before dyeing it can work if you don't rush into things. I should have used more paint, brighter colors and given a little more thought to color combinations when I picked a dye color to go under a paint color. I didn't bother to post pictures of the worst failures because there's nothing to see. The dye is stronger than any painted affects but I was using metallic paints like gold, silver, copper and pewter, little more than glitter bound together with glue. Next batch, I will use more intense and opaque colors
