Sometimes when hand-painting a piece I find that the sum of the parts exceeds the whole. Sometimes the results surprise me. Seldom do they disappoint. This time is no exception.
Firstly – the dyes did not set properly. The actual fabric the knit created was thicker than any I had painted before. I did leave it to steam longer – will have to be every longer if I want to work with this weight again.
Secondly – the dyes did combine in unexpected ways. Pink and Green went to chestnut.
The results are better than the original imagining!
