More Dye Camp Progress

My first dye camp task was to develop three levels of intensity. I know that the different colors have different intensities inherently, but I decided to find three levels that work pretty well with all seven colors (fuchsia, turquoise, yellow, gold, cobalt, red and black) — I wasn’t sure I could keep seven different sets of measurements straight! It took a few tries, but I think I lucked into a pretty good set. I’m using the dye concentrate recipe from Ann Johnston’s Color By Accident. Hint — one drop per fat quarter is too little — everything but the gold washed out to an extremely pale blue-grey!

For example, here are the cobalts:
