thanks to everyone who came out. Everyone helped out in one way or another and it was so appreciated! I can't wait to see everyone's stuff turns out. Please post pictures. We had some sweet trucks out in front of the house for a while and played with the mini trucks out back.

So this was seriously so much fun! It's hard to put into words how much I love colors. I am so grateful I was able to share my love of throwing colors at stuff and seeing what happens with others. I have seen some sneak peaks of projects already. They are so freaking cool! I have some new ideas for next time. From designs and use of color(s). I can't wait to do this again. Reach out if this sounds fun.

Lilac was a crowd favorite. It's a purple that broke into blue. Then I broke my black dye while mixing it. Some dye powders break down and mix easily. Others, not so much. I had left over black pigment that I added more water to and it turned into what I called "sorta cherry". That's the fun science side of color. You can see the lilac breaking effect on my first shirt picture on the right corner.

My first shirt of the day and it came out better than expected.

This one didn't come out how I wanted. Still looks rad but I may try this one again.

This one is my favorite! Looks like I have a picnic shirt.

I love spirals but will need to push for different patterns and colors for next time. Can you tell what my favorite color is? 😆
