Found the perfect dress to go with the embellished cardigan I shared the other day. Dress was taupe (nylon/spandex); now transformed with shades of soft citrus green, purple and black. Dye pot of wild cherry and alum in spring water; sprayed with a vinegar solution before layering with 3 kinds of eucalyptus and wrapping around an iron bar. Slow-cooked in a crockpot for 5 hours.
I’m pretty pleased with these! Here are 3 of the 14 papers I did on Tuesday, using leaves gathered from our front yard. I dipped the papers in either tea or iron water before layering, and steamed them for 1.5 hours. More photos here.
