The Dye Mixing AdventureBy Somanycolors
This is an example of dyes working well together to create a new color:
It is a combination of a red and two yellows. One color doesn't over power the others and the solid matches the mid-tones of the mottle.
Here, though, is a blue and yellow combo:
The blue totally dominates the solid and is a background color in the mottle. The yellow worked only in places on the mottle, combining with the blue to make a darker greenish shade.
This blue/yellow mix is part of an ongoing effort to get a good teal solid and mottle. So far everything I've tried ends up with the blues and yellows going their own ways, especially on the solids. I think the next thing I'll try is dyeing the fabric a yellow then dyeing with blue. And maybe the other way around, too. I've always loved a challenge!
