Dye Experiments

A few weeks ago, I was reading this blog,  and compared the results with what I've done in the past.  I thought I had checked out every black made by Dharma and ProChem, but somehow I missed Dharma 300.  My main reason for testing them is to see how well they bleach to white, or cream.

 I use the formula I learned in Carol Soderlund's classes, and ended up with 10 color gradations.

As you can see, the 300 bleaches pretty close to the off white I always look for.  It also has some beautiful grays.   The Dharma 39 has nice grays too, but bleaches to this pinky peach color, which is nice, but not what I'm looking for.
