Well it was bound to happen. I am smitten with natural dyes and experimenting with plants and flowers in my garden.
The hibiscus was blooming
the branch had some lichen on it
I wrapped whole flowers in white silk and tied the whole thing around a branch and then boiled it and added a little iron for mordant. Above is me unwrapping with the flowers still inside the silk. I know the finished piece will not be so dramatic as these photos, but I hope i can keep some of the color! Stay tuned!
