What are you most proud of? That I could mix dyes to get the colors I wanted, but also that I learned what I need to do to make more satisfying piece,i.e, using less dye powder.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? follow Jane's directions. I did this playing around, then went back and reviewed her lessons where I had marked the manipulations, mixed the dyes, and wash out. Then I did the lesson with the exact instructions and now I am waiting for them to cure. But after doing it again I feel a lot more confident and am ready to try some of the other ways to manipulate the fabric.
