Dyeing cheesecloth

Decided to do a little experimenting this morning. I wanted to dye some cheese cloth using reinker inks.

Learned right off to use just enough water to cover the cloth. For the pink cloth you see below I had to pour out most of the water I started with and then add just a little more ink. Wasted a lot of ink on the pink one.But I am happy with both colors. These are going into an altered folio I am still working on! I used Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Faded Denim.
