What are you most proud of? That I tried the over dye and it worked! I had used hose clamps on the yellow and, of course, that didn't work. I overdyed with meadow bark after batiking with various items - binder clip, cocktail strainer, heart and star magnets. This resulted in a pleasant green. I also overdyed the darker orange piece with meadow bark. I love it. The strong orange and meadow bark gave me a nice blueish-brown. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun. Cover up. Try different manipulations. It's all good.
