Not the red and green I had hoped for....

Mmmmm this dyeing business isn't as easy as I thought it would be.
 Well with food colouring it isn't.
Off I went to Asda and came out with 5 colours and some white vinegar ( because you tube said so). Got home wool and colours at the ready.
I decided just to start with red and green, how lovely and bright they looked in the bowls, on my white sink in my white kitchen. I was a bit scared....
I followed the you tube video (do they still call them videos)  to the letter! 
But something went wrong. What? I don't know?

Not very red or green. But on the bright side I have a lovely candy floss looking pink, in places anyway and a white with a touch of sunshine as the paint tin would say..... 

Going to try 'proper' dyes next.
