50 Shades of Color

I had a very satisfying dye day Monday; my inner Goddess was very pleased.
After carefully mixing up some dyes, I gently pulled out of the soda ash the scarves I had tightly bound and tied Shibori style.

I carefully lay each bound scarf in it’s plastic dye pan and slowly dribbled dye over it, first yellow, then blue, then some red. Or I may mix a nice purple or flame and saturate the white surface with the lovely mix of red and blue.

After the scarves set for an allotted time, I gently remove the restraining threads while rinsing them under cold water.

Below are how they looked while being colored and how they turned out.

My Inner Goddess is very relaxed now.

Green in an interesting color.

What's great about it is that it's a blend of two colors, Blue, a cool color and Yellow, which can be considered a warm color. So it could be called a Coolwarm color (If Coolwarm was really a word)
Green goes very nicely with other colors.

Green and Gold go very well together

So do Green and Blue (with a spash of purple(

And if you throw in some reds and pinks you have  lovely scene

Mother Nature is truely the best inspiration,
