coil basketry question - response


Date: Sat Oct 13 2001 - 15:43:37 PDT

    I've done basketry with fourth and fifth and I always soak my basket
material each morning. If you leave it soak too long (overnight), it looses
its color. I dye mine with fabric dyes before they use it. Also after you dye
it you have to air dry it or it becomes moldy. A good fan on the material
helps in the evening.
