Opposites are Complementary
Hi Everyone, this month I was thinking about how the opposites on the colour wheel are the complementary colours. This led me to the dye pots to dye both cloth and thread. It was interesting trying to find the "right" red and blue and yellow and then mix the secondaries. I'm still not 100% happy with several of the colours. (it's the red and green particularly - the most common colour blindness confusion interestingly!) The seeding is then worked in the complementary colour. I learnt a lot about dyeing thread from this exercise and it has made me want to experiment more with the "Fabric Dyer's Dictionary".
