Ok, so this is my secondish attempt at using my oven to dye roving, and I really like it!! This is a crummy camera-phone picture and doesn't do the colors justice, but I like it! I used Wilton food dye, and Sheep Shed Studio roving.

Looks great!  Is there a big difference between dyeing stuff in the oven and doing it in a steamer rack on the stovetop?

Hmm I've never used a steamer rack. I've only tried doing it in a pot, and got excited and felted the darn thing. I really like using the oven, it's super simple and the cleanup is a snap Smiley

Maybe someone else can chime in... Wink

Sounds like a good method! 

Another question, did you wrap your roving up in plastic wrap to keep the colors distinct, or did you just lay the roving in an ovensafe dish and sprinkle your dyes on?

This is the method I used http://www.helloyarn.com/randomdyeing.htm. She explains everything really clearly, and has a ton of pictures!

Thats a great tutorial, thanks! I haven't tried this method yet. Did you find the colors more vibrant then other methods? Because it looks super saturated.

Ohhhhhh, you got PURPLE  Shocked

I've been trying for *ages* to get purple with Wilton's!  How'd you do it?? Usually it splits into pinkish and blueish because of the acidic conditions.

Nice!!  Although I found myself looking sideways at what cookbooks you have!!  LOL.  The Little House Cookbook, eh?  I have that one too!

Thanks for the link to the oven dyeing tute.  I may have to try that!  Usually, I just take wet wool placed on plastic wrap, put my colors where I want them, roll up the plastic wrap and stick them in the microwave for 2-4 minutes.
