This probably looks a lot like the picture I posted yesterday, it is the same kind of ribbon after all...but it feels much different. And I learned this little trick to make a more variegated look:
See how this ribbon is blue along the edge and greenish yellow in the middle? I did that by wetting the ribbon, painting it blue, then wetting the brush and brushing the blue paint. Most of the blue paint came off. I then painted the middle with yellow, turning that area greenish, but leaving the edges blue. I like that technique and when I get my wider ribbon, I'm going to try that.
Finally, I had a triumph of sorts with dyeing silk scarves. I have had a problem getting really dark colors on silk with the dyes I use. Technically the dyes are for cotton and rayon, not so much for silk, although they do work. The colors come out a lighter pastel. Well, not if you put a whole big bunch of dye in the water and dye the scarf in a ziploc bag. The dark navy color of one scarf is the first of very, very few dark colors I've been able to achieve.
