this is super amazing. your dye consistency looks really thick for the paint. what do you use? just sodium alginate? I LOVE the colors on this but I have such a hard time getting mine to that sort of intensity, even though I follow the jacquard recipes.

thanks!

i didnt use alginate- i just concentrate my dye by adding an extra heaping teaspoon to the dye cups.

hemp fabric dyes AMAZING- it really takes dye well ... probably my most favorite fiber to dye right  next to silk velvet....

its gonna be mega big and much more intricate than this one Wink
