    48C32806-AA45-4662-9273-E8C91AB5D44F.png Hey guys

    Just wondering if anyone can help me with this colouring issue. I’m trying to create something similar to the image attached. I have used dye blocks and liquid dye and just can’t seem to figure it out.
    Please help

    Hi Jenna,

    To me that colour looks saturated (see the colour puddle at the bottom of the jar?).

    This blog has a bit of information - you might be able to modify/experiment with dividers and the line effects from this technique (below) to get what you are after.

    Possibly dye blocks at the bottom or pouring two colors at the same time, but I dont think either method would turn out so neat.
