Over recent days I have been working on this project and enjoying different processes.
I have incorporated some different dyeing methods from India Flints book that I posted about last week. I loved the ice-flower dyes.
This is may test your patience but I found it was worth trying and worth the wait of a few days. The colours can be rather beautiful and it is very interesting to watch as the process develops on your windowsill or other sunny spot. Cold bundled eco-prints produced some lovely clear prints from my rose leaves.
Overdyeing the lace and fabric gave a variety of colourings which you can see in the photos.
I used agapanthus flowers, onion peelings and the green colouring is from the rose leaves
This is the book where I learned about the dyeing processes typed in italics. Eco Colour: Botanical Dyes for Beautiful Textiles
