Vegas Water: First Dyeing Attempt

I really want to report that my first day of dyeing here went well, but alas, I cannot. Back in NY, the properties of the water were much more dye-friendly. The water wasn't as hard, and the pH levels were more...pro-dyeing.

In Vegas, the water is very hard and yours truly did not compensate for extra chemicals. Whoops! The result, although not horrible, actually yielded some muted, natural looking desert colors. One in particular, which I named "Red Rock," was my favorite and now lives with my swap partner. Here are a few pics:


There will be more dyeing days soon. And since the sun is so majestic here, it will be perfect for drying!
