My dye pot always seems to boil over when I do iDyeing on the stove. We recently re-did our kitchen and now have ivory colored quartz counter tops. I did not want to stain our new counter tops, so I evicted my stovetop dyeing to the backyard.
I bought a plug-in electric burner at Bed Bath and Beyond and plugged it in with an extension cord to an outlet in the garage. The table I have outside is not very stable so I put it on the patio flagstone. Other than having to hold the pot when I stir (as it wants to slide off the burner) and feeling like I needed to babysit it in case a squirrel or Yeti wandered into the yard and caught on fire from the hot plate, it went well.
The best part of doing this outside is that I didn't stink up the house, this stuff smells icky.
Here is the organza. I think I put too much fabric in the pot (as usual, when will I learn?) as it still has pink spots from the previous dye job, and a nice black splotch in the middle. Overall it is gray with pinkish areas.
This is the organza in a pile, I thought it was hard to see the true color while hanging on the line.
It sure isn't black, and I don't mind the mottled pink spots. It is way better than the sad pink it was originally!
