Here are some pictures of experiments I have done with dyeing material. This is mainly for Yessica’s clothing. I experimented with Dylon dyes which work well with cotton. I wanted to mix the colours to get a certain shade which takes quite a long time and a lot of experimenting. I managed to get the right colour which was great  but unfortunately discovered that the dye I had does not dye nylon and polyester. You have to get different dye for that called Polydye, which you heat up on a cooker to dye nylon. This will be more difficult to mix the colours up so back to the drawing board.

I also experimented with more natural dyes from coffee, tea, juice and spices
