Have been playing around this evening experimenting with more embellished fabric but this time using Potassium Permanganate and Lemon Juice.
I used a teaspoon of Pot.Mang to a litre of hot water and soaked the two pieces of fabric for about 1o minutes.
I love the imperial purple colour of the Pot.Mang, I feel its such a shame sometimes when the colour oxidises in the air.
After rinsing through in cold water I squirted Pure Lemon Juice on, scrunched it up, squeezed it a little, then rinsed it out. It doesn't take long at all for the lemon juice to lift the Pot.Mang out.
The top piece of embellished fabric had been pre-dyed - dip dyed in Procion MX dyes in rust orange and indigo blue.
This was an undyed piece of embellished fabric.
