i'm pleased with the weaving, very wabi, but the color......
the color is more like the left photo.but i want it redder.i really want "turkey red" madder. been at it for over a month and the best is this light cantaloupe. i'm aging some more madder with calcium carbonate as per this recipe and keeping my fingers the meantime if i cant get the color i can make it or fake it, photo on the right. yep, more time at the computer with good ole ps.
