Q&A with khshaker

Enchante asked:
WOW....it looks like fire under glass! Did you scrunch this?
khshaker answered:
Yes, scrunched and tray dyed. Then washed and scrunched and dyed again...
Kathy Riggs asked:
Stunning. What dyes colors did you use?
khshaker answered:
Procion MX -- a combination of Golden Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Scarlet, Magenta and Rust Brown.
debazoid876644 asked:
Gorgeous! How did you do this? I want to dry hand dyeing fabric! There is more to this than just dyeing!
khshaker answered:
Take Jane Dunnewold's dyeing class for a start, then pick up a copy of "Tray Dyeing" byLeslie Morgan & Claire Benn.
