Playing with Stripes

Last week I made the 4th of July challah.


It’s all right, but a bit messy.  I would like to get better at stripes.  So I decided to refine the technique.

Last week I had used small bowls to dye the stripes.  They were messy and awkward.  So this week I sued plates with the dye.


And let the stripes dry a bit once dyed.



Then, wiping my hands between stripes, I placed them in the baking dish.


This design is inspired by my love of open water swimming.

The final product ended up a lot cleaner looking:


So clearly this technique is a step in the right direction.
