It’s a vintage rose, dusty rose…it has just the barest hint of mauve and I’m experimenting with it. Today, after spending several days preparing a few scarves, they were finally immersed in their color.
With these I’ve established that I have the hue I want to work with and that I can also create ombre with it on silk. I still need to know how deep I can go, so there’s still more testing to do.
All of this has to do with a small commission or order requested several weeks ago. It involves over dyeing a long white silk dress in a rose ombre. I feel like it has to be approached very carefully-hence the practice.
