Dye table family

Just a quick post before the day takes me away. Silks pinned to padded table top in the morning light, waiting to be unpinned and stored away for the steaming. The table top has picked up a lot of dye from previous dyed silks so there is much transference of color. I use an algae thickener to block some of transference and dye run. Experimentation and learning forever. All the red is pick up from undercloth. Always exciting to see the silks after steaming, wash out, and ironing when they show their true colors.
