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.
