The colours are not exactly true, most colours look darker in pictures and not as bright as they are. Although one colour looked a lot lighter in pics.. hmm.. First I played with blue and lilac colours. Here are the results.
This fabric was 14ct cream aida (about 17x20), It's blue with lilac areas here and there. I like it a lot! :) I wanna stitch something on it, right now!
I also dyed some small pieces.
This one is actually a bit darker colour in real. I like it, even though I didn't mean to have those light spots.
Two tiny pieces, again they are darker in real. I used same blue and lilac colours on all these, just changed the amount of colour and combinations :)
Next I tried red. First on a small piece.
Now this picture is BAD! It's not this pink, it's more like a peach coloured. I liked it a lot, so wanted to dye a bigger piece which would be the same colour.
No. It's not the same colour :D This picture is actually very close to the real colour. Even though it's not what I was after, I do like it a lot and I already know what I am gonna stitch on it! You'll see later ;)
The next day I wanted to try green! I love green and esp. on fabrics. I had two 20x22 pieces of 14ct cream aida and one piece of antique white jobelan (28ct, 13x18). Results..
Me likes! NO! Me loves!! The colour is more to a lime green. It's not this dark. No matter what I did, I couldn't take a pic which would show the real colour :( However, it looks damn nice in real and I can't wait to stitch something on this/these!
Here's the second one. They look almost the same. I dyed the Jobelan last and the amount of colour is the same on it, however, it is a bit brigter and darker in colour than aida. I love it and I wanna stitch a pixie on it :) Hmm.. then again, not sure if the fabric is big enough?
I love those greens! It's such a shame you can't see the real colour. I think I try to take a new pics later as I would like you to see how bright the colours are!
I wanna buy more white fabric so I can dye more. I also need to get brown dye as I need brown fabric for Mirabilia's Archangel. And brown is another favourite colour of mine :)
