How-to: Vat Dye Multi-Colored Play Silks and Silk Scarves

repack the silk into the baggiesRepack the silk into the same baggies and retie them with the same rubber bands, exposing a new section for a new vat of dye.

Repeat for as many sections of different colors as you’d like, until you’ve dyed yourself the perfect multi-colored play silk.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
