This upcycled pure silk top was pale pink originally; steamed for 2 hours after layering with red rhododendron flowers and red onion skins. The applique fabric was dyed in purple carrot water + alum, then layered with leaves and brown onion skins and steamed for 1.5 hours. Both were wrapped around a rusty trampoline spring.
So pleased with this eco printed rice paper! Red rhododendron flowers with red or brown onion skins; rolled up and tied around a piece of old fence paling (left), or an iron spring (remaining papers). Sheets first dipped in tea; steamed for 1.5 hours.
