Mad Scientist

That's what I feel like when experimenting with dying. After purchasing a bottle of liquid Rit in a new color "Violet" from Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to see what shades I got from several different furs and also strength of the dye. A couple of small scraps in a weak dye bath(about 10 drops in about a quart of water) for 2 minutes, achieved a kind of light rose pink. Then a tablespoon of dye was added to the bath. It looks like a bright fuschia to me. I like the color of the Golden Tan with a dark bath after dying - both with the weak and the strong dye bath. Maybe a little ellie? Hmmm....maybe next ....something in between.
