The first set of samples are scrim that has been dyed using Brusho Powder.
I heard about this method some years ago but never got around to trying it.
I bought a box of 24 colours from Rainbow Silks. They have turned out really well and so easy to do. The colours stayed the same even after drying. Obviously I haven’t rinsed them but for the project I have in mind washing will not be an option so it doesn’t really make much difference.
I used kitchen towel to mop up the excess paint. The colour isn’t quite so bright on these after drying but Acrylic Wax or Gel Medium will soon alter that.
This is how my washing line looked this morning.
I dyed more scrim, muslin and cotton velvet with Procion MX dyes. Wonderful colours.
This is the scrim and muslin waiting to be ironed.
