Acorn Dye

I fermented the acorns I had for about three weeks. I scraped off the mold and threw the liquid and the acorns in a stainless steel pot then boiled it for about 20 minutes. Now I am going to let it set overnight. This is silk with no pre-mordant. I want to use this as a basis for an eco print, I hope the pink lasts through the whole process.
