Colour Project – Purple, Part 3
Above – Discharge paste on commercially dyed Dupion silk
Below – Samples of discharge paste through a Thermofax screen on Scrunch jar dyed Habutai silks and cottons. These have all worked much better than the greens previously. Turquoise doesn’t discharge, so I image there was some of it in that dye pot. This is where taking good notes at the time would be an advantage!
