Well yesterday I dyed and painted some more material for backgrounds. These gauge pieces were done a while back. The painted pieces were not blending as well as I wanted, but I think I am going to redo them and add some salt.
The solid colored gauge does not show the true colors, the yellow, blue and pink or such a nice bright, while the back pieces were just a mish mash of color. I got the multi color from just useing them to mop up after I painted something. They too are a brighter color.
