was trying for a colour wheel, the yellow and magenta seem to be too strong while the intermediaries have little variation. Oh well back to the drawing board!

Mixed a dye solution (1%) with a soda ash and salt solution. Put the mixture in an old yoghurt pot, then scrunched in the fabric pushing it all in so it was tightly squashed. I try to only use enough liquid to just cover the scrunched up fabric.
