From Land and Sea

Here are the results from yesterday's dye pot using natural materials. Seaweed provided the colour for the top picture - it is actually lighter then the photo shows. Green seaweed gave a gold color and the red gave a purple. The next piece of silk used arbutus bark for colour and the last has used seedpods and one red leaf where the dark spot is. I also tried maple seeds and got a faint outline. I imagine if the fabric steamed or set longer that the image would be clearer. I am interested to add different colours over top of some of these.
