after years of refusing to wear sensible socks in the winter- it just kinda happened that i'm mostly immune these days from cold.

Forgive me, as I'm an extreme beginner to dyeing, but how would you go about this?  Dye the whole thing turquoise, wax the parts you wanted to stay turquoise, dye it green, wax the parts you want to stay green, then do it in orange? DD and I are embarking on our first dyeing attempts this weekend, hopefully, and this looks beautiful!  The original plan was to just tie dye, or paint it with a paint brush (have paintstiks and dyna flow (however it's spelled), but this looks really great!  Of course, I'd also have to find some wax....

the dress i made from white rayon---
i sewed it and then dunked it in turq dye... i dyed a seperate piece to color the waist band to sew on later...

drew in the parts i wanted to stay turquoise- then a dip in bright green..dry ... more waxing... the final bath was orange- which made it come out a weird browny shade i like a lot.
then i boiled it- added the turquoise bias tape and bam.

rayons a pain to sew sometimes- it tears up really easy and water weakens the fibers....
