What materials did you use? Apparently I over used the sun! Beeswax, paraffin, dyes, bleach, vinegar, water

It has actually been a very fun experiment. I dyed part of the "burgundy" again today and the smear made a very pretty background.

Wish I had some of that Texas sun! Is this a project for doing outdoors? I better get on it before the New England winters set in!

~This doesn't have to be an outdoor project, it just started out that way because I was combining this with a friends desire to tie dye shirts. Wrote about our adventure here:http://www.gotitfromgranny.blogspot.com/2013/07/the-tweedles-in-colorland.html
