Dye Resist Experiments — Drawing Lines

Trying to get resisted lines, I first used a simple running stitch and drawing the thread tight.  But I couldn’t get it tight enough:orinui_01web

So, I tried again using a running stitch along a fold, which got a double layer of fabric.  Much better:

This is a color experiment as well — I’m beginning to see that dyeing one color over another is not equivalent to mixing the two and dyeing, so I’m starting some tests to see if I can learn what to expect (hah! as if…).  This is the difference between the overdye, with the lines, and the mixed version of the same colors, in the overlay strip.  For these colors, it’s fairly close.
