Remember my Ugly Wet Studio Corner? Well I am contemplating buying a microwave to sit atop the fridge for fabric dyeing. In this climate I have had to bundle up all my pieces of fabric wrap them to ensure no drips and hoick them all through the house and leave a heater on in the closed study all night to ensure that the fabric cures at the required temperature. ( And even then I am not getting very bright jewel like hues. Of course, I don't really know what I am doing having only had three attempts, but I do believe that it is possible to cure the fabric in the nicrowave to ensure that it quickly gets to the right tenperature. Or is this juts for non cotton fabrics?
Has any one else tried this and if so do you have any advice for me?
