Preparing for the study
We have 10 participants and we are making all kinds of decisions: what fiber, what dye to use. We are evaluating the equipment we have; right now we have been focusing on balances-- the most important piece of equipment in the dye studio. We are stumbling around on the wiki, which allows us to interact and is very nice except that it doesn't have a spell checker and I can't spell or type...
We are thinking about how to organize and store our samples. We are creating a reference library of dye samples for our studio. We need to have this system in place before we start dyeing so that we can keep up. If you don't do it as you go samples get separated from the formula.. it all gets to be overwhelming and you end up with a pile of useless samples in a box.
And we have ordered our Munsell kits and hope to have the first sheet; hue, value/chroma done by Mon.
