Yesterday we created golden silks - to bring more of that sun inside! I used a different type of dye this time - it was very easy and the boys could safely do it with me.
We created some solid golden silks, and then A carefully worked on knotting twine with me to create his special pattern. A also wanted to know about the fabric, the dye, how different colors are made, and how/why the color adheres to the material and doesn't rinse out. Very interesting!
They turned out great, and that vivid color is so beautiful!
We made four, so of course now we have a few more than we need - but that is OK - I'm sure they will find a home.
Note: To answer the questions about the white silks and the dye :: I get the white silk squares here. I like the Habotai Scarves which are 35" square. They also sell the Jacquard acid dyes at this site too (they have a big selection). But this time I bought the dye from here (scroll down) instead, and they had special instructions of their own that they mailed with the order which doesn't use boiling water - making the process a bit more child friendly and it worked great!
