11  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Lab made dye on: April 27, 2009 07:44:33 PM
In chemistry lab, we made dyes by soaking fabric in one chemical, then in another, so the dye itself actually formed around the fibers instead of first creating the dye then dipping fabric in it to make the color. Because the dye is formed around the molecules of the fibers, it is very permanent.
The octopus was done by first soaking in one of the chemicals, then painting it on with the second.  The rest is tie-dye.
This is actually the dye that is often used to make the red in the American flag.
Also, the dye looks like the blood from Sweeney Todd when it is in a flask.

That hat turned out rather well, all things considered. I thought it was cool how none of the braids where exactly the same.

mmm, brain cupcakes.  The glaze is a nice touch, it makes them look fresh. If it was bigger it might work as a decoy in case of a zombie attack.
