Post Boiling

This is what they look like cooked, now we wait and see what happens!


I decided to try this out today. I have done some dyeing in jars before but they came out pretty smelly. Hopefully a bit of a boil will help avoid that - we will see what happens down the road!

Hopi Red Dye Amaranth

I am growing tons of the stuff and now can't find a dye recipe. So I decided to see if it steam prints, and, as you can see it does! Now to see if it stays red. These are the flowers shredded up and sprinkled in with pressed leaves. I also threw in some artemisia and locust.
