I was dyeing to try it.




So the results are revealed.



I dissolved half a teaspoon of Alum powder in a little boiling water (swilling the liquid around to dissolve it)

The I added plant material and topped it up with water.

It was a super experiment and I will do more.


This was blackberry.

I love the colors in the thread.

This was lavender flowers, a bit of a surprise.
Agapanthus flower.
Gum leaves. Love it.
Another surprise, Marigold.
