I mixed the dyes for the green flower parts and the first lot of the leaves is already:
dried, cut out and even shaped and I'm quite satisfied with the result : )
The second lot of the leaves (slightly different color and made from a new silk) is still drying : )
Did you know that you can achieve different coloring results with different silks?
The same dyes could look brighter and almost pale on different silks.
For example, these leaves (on the photo above) made from Substitute of velvet /9/:
They look less bright than the same dyes on the leaves made from satin.
and bare in mind that the same concentration on dyes will look different on the right and the wrong sides of the same silk.
and one more tip: if you dye two or more layers of the silk in one stack, remember that the bottom layer usually looks lighter than the top layer.
Was that helpful?
