Spot Dye Named Spectacle

I showed you a group of spot dyes yesterday and gave you the formula for the beautiful green one.
Wednesday needs a little more pep I think and so I've given you the formulas for it's companion piece Spectacle.

A Spot such as this is useful as outline, flower centers, to act as paisley cloth, if cut and kept in the order of cutting ( apply to piece of carpet or double sided tape) can act as an out of focus background.
It is useful in most geometrics, landscapes, orientals and even crewels. I even use them in portraits.
