Adventures in Eco-Dyeing

I Discovered Green

As it turns out,

this feisty rusted orange

overlaid upon faded avocado pit pink

on iron mordanted cotton

transitions through a luscious cherry fiesta

and becomes a medium khaki grassy green.

This feisty rusted orange

soaked into an (unmordanted) natural woollen fibre

parties in sangria

before becoming a weakened late summer mustard sunset, the final tarnished golden hue of Staffordshire’s Iron Age gold.

Alas, the light penetrating mine eye equals not the light entering thy camera’s.

The cotton results are really GREEN!

Did the purple backdrop create enough complimentary contrast? Not really.

You’ll just have to try it yourself to see.
