Interesting Color Value dye study that I did.  Using Jet Black dye from Dharma and not stirring(I like the molted look) the colors that they used to produce the Jet Black had a lot of lavender in it – so as I’m pressing the fabric you find a lavender/grey change thus the value change of the layers is somewhat hard to find.  I am going to do it over tomorrow using New Black from Dharma – do it baggies and place in a warm water bath to hold the temperature above 70 degrees.  Here in the mountains we are still cooling down in the evening and studio is on the lower floor.  Hope for better results tomorrow.
