Dylon Dyes 65- Dyeing Corks

When I finished with the Burlesque Red in this post I decided to do some exhaust dyeing, with a difference.
I dumped a heap of champagne corks into the mix. mmmm????? Problem, they floated on the top.
I needed to find a way to weight them down so they were immersed in the dye. I left them overnight.
Here they are drying. They are more stained with red than dyed a solid colour.
I’m quite happy with the way they turned out. I actually had a reason for trying this, there is a project floating around in the back of my brain somewhere. Stay tuned. More to come.
