Dyeing at Midnight

Last night, I couldn't sleep so I thought I try my hand at Kool aid dyeing. So after running around the house looking for my little packets of Kool-Aid, I set up shop in the kitchen. Near the microwave.

After surveying all these little packets of color, I realized that I didn't have enough of any one color. The goal was a nice variegated skein of purple and red. Well, the grape ran into the mango and then into the cherry, and I ended up with something that looked akin to the raw umber in the crayola packs. Not a very pretty color.

Looking back at my rainbow of flavors, there were more Black Cherry than any other flavor.


So here it is....
Black Cherry-lite
and here's a close up...

It's a nice kind of peachy pink, but I think I'd like it a little darker.

I know it wasn't what you were expecting, but I think it's a great salmon pink colour!

Those are gorgeous photos. I think it is great for a midnight dye job. I really like it.

Personally, I think it's a lovely shade of pink. But if you'd like it darker you can always dye it again or overdye it with another color and see how that turns out.

Thanks. I think I was expecting a darker pink, so I might try dyeing it again. I just need to get more Black Cherry.
