I have been experimenting a bit with plant dyeing, just for fun, and I have been pleasantly surprised. Onion skin and blueberries.
Drafting (roughly) for a collage card (watercolour and mixed media). I’m really looking forward to coming back a bit to my pens and pencils! I have missed them so much.
ahhh Flakstad, i love that island. the photos are stunning, dear Kundry. the plant dyes look wonderful. the onion dyed ones make me think of Rapunzel. would you give beetroot a go ever? love to you, jo xxx
Thank you, Jo! I think Flakstad is my favourite island.Yes, the onion dye is a beautiful gold. I still prefer dyeing with the acid dyes though, but it was interesting. Hugs
C’est vrai que la laine teinte avec l’oignon fait penser à la chevelure de Raiponce. Ou au fil d’or filé par Rumpelstilskin.
Exactement ce type d’or, oui!
