Digital Dye Book

This is a digital representation of my physical dye book. I began experimenting in different types of dyeing in 2018 and wanted to share my results with folks looking for a place to get started. I am not a professional dyer and have no formal training in the chemical processes involved.

If you would like to tip for the time and materials used in these experiments and documentation, feel free to go on over to my Ko-Fi. Any contributions are appreciated.
