The other day I was looking into the containers of Dharma Fiber Reactive Procion dyes trying to figure out the difference between Carmel, Sahari and Chamois. I can't tell the difference by looking at powdered dye. I decided to start documenting when I dye or paint fabric. Nothing fancy so I will keep up with it. This book is for me to use as a reference when thinking about dyeing or painting fabrics for a project. I bought a wire bound sketchbook and started attaching the dyed/painted fabric scraps with short notes about the dye and water recipe. Again nothing fancy.
I started with Dharma Procion dyes in browns. I've been dyeing a lot of browns lately so, the scraps spilled over to 2 pages. I left a few blank pages inbetween each page that has fabric scraps attached. I want to try to keep the color families together.

I don't use a lot of red, orange or yellow in my artwork so, I put the scraps on one page.
