This past week I concentrated on sample dyeing, but was able to fit in one bundle with fern fronds carefully collected during a morning dog walk. The fern prints are delicate and bright green on the habotai silk. My small copper pieces went into the pot again, but no other mordants were used.
The dye samples are for the upcoming workshop
. They turned out nice, with two dips each in the dye bath and the alum mordant. Promising.
