Drying on the line. It looks like A calypso. Hmm I wonder what I will make out of it. It's a huge skein.
Here it is, all dried by baking in the sun and drying in the dryer. I used DecoArt acrylics mostly and their fabric medium, as you can see the colors are very bright as they have good pigment. I try to use up all my oldest paints or almost empty bottles...so nothing goes to waste. Painting yarn or fabric for quilting or art, is a good way. One just needs to remember, when using acrylics, to paint fabric or yarn, to add fabric medium to retain softness. Once washed and dried, the color is there to stay and you have something unique and orginal to work with.
I will wash it in a couple of days and then decide what to do with it. I kinda like painting yarn. ...it's easy...one has so much control. Now I have all those tubs of fabric dye powder, that I have never opened. I need to sell them on ebay.
