baby doo-doo

yep, that's the color in the pot  from the lichens. the dyed wool skein wasn't any  better
plain and b-o-r-i-n-g beige after the effort.

luckily there were some jars with brazilwwod steeping in alcohol from last summer!

on to overdyeing.
the color is much more satisfying, a muted claret.i used sodium bicarb as an alkali modifier because it is milder than washing soda. it seemed to work as color modifier. 

 turning a page. i've been moving some of my photos to ipernity. just this morning i discovered that in order to share your photos you have to be a paying member   (o|o)  ($_$) (ò_ô) 
oh well, there's still picasa and photobucket! 
if what really annoys  you from flickr is the layout and you can cope with the present slowness a good solution:
download and install destroy flickr. at least you can customise the way you view not only your photos, but also your contacts and faves. and you do not have to camp  out in front of the computer waiting for those huge photos to  show up.

yet one more page turn. how do you like the new look of this blog? did you notice?

  1. Overdyeing did the trick. Beautiful color!

    overdyeing is great fun, the only problem is you can't repeat the colour. I can always tell when the folks at wordpress are bored - things start to go sideways!! I can't seem to get my pictures placed off center, it's nice for a change.

  3. Yay, overdyeing saves the day! Again. Surprising how often you get bleh when you were going for yum.

    Gee, I'd have to actually visit your blog instead of reading the feed to notice changes! ;) OK, it's very pretty and a little easier to read for these eyes. Love your photos.

  4. That claret is a very nice color! I've got some lichen that's been soaking a long time - I should get it out and see what it does...

  5. beautiful overdyed color. i like the background on your blog and its simplicity.


interaction appreciated!
