Sunshine and Ivy



Here are two close-ups of more natural dyeing. I had placed ivy leaves on the silk and sprinkled tumeric around them, hoping to create a sun print effect, with the leaves as a resist. You can see I got one obvious leaf print and some fainter ones. I like the bright colour, which matches the sunshine outside today. The ivy leaves on silk without any other dye stuff left a few black marks on my oak leaf silk, which add some interest, but I was hoping for green. What next?
