I got a little letter asking me what makes good snow. Here it is:
"What would you suggest to dye over white or neutral wool for different shades of snow? I think it would be to stark to just use plain white. Do I use small amounts of black, blue or even brown? I have Majic dyes that I love but also have some Cushing. Not quite sure what to do"
Here is what I said back:
I need more info, is the snow shadowed in some places or just meeting pieces of snow like with a snowman? Is this a simple or complex project?
Generally you want to think about what your snow needs.
Is it a sharp cold day?
I suggest blue with blue green too.
Is it in shadow ? I suggest blue violet with blue added and black added.
Is it spring? I suggest adding a small amount of seal brown.
There are many variables here and I can't advise you without more info!
Write me back!!!
Now I want you all to tell me, seriously, am I too complex?
Now take a look at this photo and tell me I think too much!
This snow is everything from bright yellow white to violet!
And it is coming no matter the colour. So get spinning and knitting up your new gear.
