The lac finally came this week! And so finally the Natural Reds series is completed.
I was most disappointed in the lac because the dye took so unevenly. Some spots were a lavender shade, others a more satisfying burgundy. I am lacking in good instructions for dying with lac and maybe that was part of it. If it had all come out the burgundy color, I would have been delighted.
I will be adding some osage orange to the lac dyebath early next week to see if I can get a nice orange for the present Project Spectrum. Then I will play with Logwood and Indigo to see if we can get some nice purples.
