adventures in silk tie dye

I found myself wanting to dye today.  Silk necktie transfer, that is.  I only had a few pieces of silk left for the base, and a whole basket of silk ties I’ve been collecting, so I was only able to do a couple of batches, but I am tickled with the results!12

These images are right after the pieces came out of the vinegar bath, but the colors have remained pretty true to what I captured. Sometimes when the silk dries, the colors wash out some, but I think that a heavier hand with the vinegar pulled deeper colors this time than what I’ve gotten before with this process.

Now to decide– do I keep them for myself or tuck them into my Etsy shop?
