polaroid_dreamer Surely spring is coming soon? // Shibori silk crepe de chine scarf, dyed with handmade organic black bean dye. Can't wait to post all the other patterns. 2w
  •   polaroid_dreamer @juliannapuccini aww, thank you!! 2w
  •   polaroid_dreamer @thejasperpatch haha awesome! Let's do it!! 2w
  •   juliannapuccini @polaroid_dreamer have you found the black bean dye is lightfast? 2w
  •   polaroid_dreamer @juliannapuccini there hasn't been enough light these days to properly know if it'll fade any, but from what I can see, the dye is lightfast. Most of the time that went into making these was spent ensuring the dye would hold well (washing with the special pre-dye detergent; mordanting; washing with the dye-fast detergent), and there was very little dye that rinsed out when I did my initial post-dye rinse, so I'm pretty confident these will stay beautiful! how is your wool from our dyeing session looking? 2w
  •   juliannapuccini @polaroid_dreamer cool. Have you noticed any fading from older dyed items? Mine seem ok but I didn't do a proper test (with a covered control strand) - regretfully. 2w
  •   polaroid_dreamer @juliannapuccini yeah, I wish I'd been able to do a test strip or something! I haven't noticed any fading whatsoever on the scarves...but the tote bags I dyed with you look super pale in comparison, haha! I wanted to try getting that gorgeous grey you got, but I was afraid it wouldn't stick as well as the regular cold dye. 2w
  •   pamlostracco So lovely! 2w
  •   polaroid_dreamer @pamlostracco thank you!! 2w

polaroid_dreamer Went to see Jack Bush at the National Art Gallery the other day, and ended up making my own interpretation of his "Flags" series in a mini-workshop there. Wish it was anything close to the real deal, but sadly my colour theory is a bit rusty these days. 1mon

polaroid_dreamer The Northern Lights were too faint to show up on film, so Mr. De Champlain stepped in to up the atmosphere. 2mon
  •   thejasperpatch What?! Were they visible???!!!! No!!!!! (Apologies, congratulations! I've never seen them so i'm a teensy bit jealous!) 1mon
  •   polaroid_dreamer @thejasperpatch yes, they were visible - sorry to break your heart! It was my first time seeing them too, if that makes you feel better? (and they were pretty pale, for the most part...) 1mon
  •   thejasperpatch So exciting! We stalk the aurora websites, and I was even out with the dog at midnight - nothing! One day....one day! 1mon
  •   polaroid_dreamer @thejasperpatch that's when we noticed it, too! Midnight dog walks are apparently the best time? Haha. 1mon
