Hi, I have a 3x3metre white cotton muslin which I would like to dye and get as close to the subtle mottling of this photography backdrop:

http://cdn1.bigcommerce.com/server4100/2cba3/images/stencil/2000x2000/products/1873/6492/Leticia_2__83675.1448375012.jpg?c=2

I have done one backdrop already which turned out ok, but I'm after a less mottled look like the one in the photo.

Can anyone give me some idea's on how to get more subtle mottling, or have more control over where the mottle will occur , also does the size of the container which the fabric sits in (WxL) have a bearing on how much mottling there is?. Just to note, I wish to keep things relatively cheap so I'm using RIT dye and the dye does not have to be totally wash proof as I wont be washing it.

If I can get it to look as close to the texture of the posted photography as possible I would be very happy!.

Many Thanks,

Sam
