I did something! Wanna' see??
It started out like this:
And a damp piece of cloth laying on some trash bags!
So I set out tonight to make me an ombre piece of cloth! (did you read my cowboy accent?? Ombre is so country sounding!) I set out a couple trashbags, marked the trashbags at 6 inch intervals and wet the cloth and wrung it out. I believe this cloth is about 2.5 meters long and maybe a meter wide (? - it's folded in half longways)
I put the tea in one of those restaurant salad dressing bottles... you know, the clear versions of those ketchup/mustard bottles at diners.
ANYWHOSITZ! I squirted my extra concentrated tea on the bottom six inches of the fabric, and as I expected, it didn't color the fabric as much as I had hoped it would; tea is not dye, so it doesn't stain fabric as well as I had hoped. But that's ok!
It actually worked out to my advantage: The tea didn't create dark blocks of color that made blending difficult.
In the meantime, I found a better place to hang it and there it will stay until it stops dripping tea all over the gall dern place.
For now, I ombre-d!! I'm so excited!! Did anyone else tackle a new skill and surprise themselves??
