Day One of my Erosion Bundle

It is late but finally hung.  Here is my erosion bundle.  I am interested in how it will turn out.  It is about 2 yards of mystery green fabric wrapped around a PVC pipe and tied with yarn.  I then poured a soda ash solution on it and some blue dye.  It is hanging in my privacy fence scultpure.

Here are the questions:
  1. How far did the soda ash solution soak into the fabric?
  2. How far did the navy blue dye soak into it?
  3. I didn't rinse out the extra dye before I hung it so the rain and snow will do that.  What will that look like?
  4. Navy blue dye tends to fade in the sun.  What will that look like with this piece?
  5. This is mystery fabric so, how will the dye work with the fabric is also a mystery, let alone how the fabric will respond to the elements.
I am excited by the prospects!
