I call this Tropical Crunch, sound like one of those exotic drinks you get while on holiday. I finger pleated the fabric them crammed it into a honey jar. I decanted some of the dye from the first batch and poured it over. It was no more than 1/2 cup. I replaced the lid and let it sit in the sun for an hour.
This is the second time I have done this process and it seems to work. Give you an extra contrasting effect with very little extra work.
