Trombolice is semi-solid mix of dark purples. Named after a conversation I had at work over the song “Freed From Desire”, where one of our company colours is…purple!
It goes through a total of three dye stages to build up the colour, with the water never even reaching a simmer.
First it has a short bath in some pink:
Then a longer bath in some violet:
And finally it has a very long soak in a touch of black until all the dye has been soaked up and the water cooled:
And the finished product? Here it is, looking fabulous and powerful!
