After activating the color
The color, like most liquid color on fabric, is difficult to control. Next time I'll use aloe instead of modgepodge to activate with water.
Here are some pieces that I've been collecting from various slow natural dye experiments. No intent to control here at all. Just enjoying the surprise.
The above pieces were dyed with rusty objects, yard mushrooms, yard blossoms, red cabbage, purple onion, and wild strawberries. These were dyed with just a little vinegar and time.
Now I'm adding the element of heat. I guess I'm pickling these pieces. The dye is from Camilla blossoms. More pink, but only time will tell.
Just out of the pot!
My dyeing experiments are limited by the fact that I am trying to avoid toxic elements. And I want to use what I have.

I'm learning some things about photographing, scanning, and editing images. Just learning.
