I dyed up three more small batches of buttons just to see what the colors would look like.
First I did some Golden Yellow (left), but think they look much too close to the Sunshine Orange (right) I did last time, I've mixed those two together and refer to them as Orange Marmalade. On the bottom is Violet.
Today I did a small batch of Scarlet.
It's amazing how you can get so many different shades of color from a single dye color. It all depends on the button, plastic or nylon, thick or thin, shiny or matte. I did have a few buttons that would barely take the dye, so I'll most likely use some color remover on them to see what happens and leave them as-is.
I'm hoping to cut my own wood buttons and try some dye on those, but need to get a blade for my coping saw to try hand cutting since I don't have a band saw.
Well that's it for this post, thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind, I truly do appreciate each and every one of them. So until next time ......
Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
