Try, Try, Try Again

So remember when I said I was happy that my dye job had turned out? Yea… that was a lie. Well, not entirely. It seemed okay when I did a quick check, but I guess I had been in a hurry. I didn’t realize how dull (too much pearl grey) the color was until I brought the entire thing from the bathroom yellow light into the bedroom white light (hence the check in natural light thing). Basically instead of going to school as I had originally planned, I ended up filling up my buckets again for a second go around. I let it sit for three hours, then I rinsed it, dried it, checked it and prayed that the third time would be a charm. I let the last one soak overnight, woke up at 6am to blow dry it and figured that was as good as it was going to get.

Thankfully it wasn’t. I explained my dilemma to my professor and we both agreed that leaving the bobbinet that sad shade of a wannabe sexy crimson red was not going to fly. She told me to try Aljo (http://www.aljodye.com/main.html) for some professional standard dyes that might allow for a more saturated and richer color.

Located on 49 Walker Street, the closest stop was the A,C,E to Canal Street. What can I say? Amazing, well-informed and super helpful staff. I can’t believe I had never heard of them until now. They have dyes for everything from cotton and rayon to polyester to silk and wools and even wood finishes. If anyone has a solution to your dyeing woes, Aljo will help you solve it. Not to mention, Aljo Dyes are about the same price as Rit Dyes which is awesome!

Professional dyes require a stove top so the kitchen was unavoidable.

SO, SO, SO AWK, but this basically sums up why I avoid using the video recorder…embedded by Embedded Video

Now that is without a doubt, the sexiest crimson red I have ever seen.

SUCCESS!!!
