A great plus for living in Houston is there is plant material available all year for printing. This scarf was with some fallen pear leaves and fresh rose leaves.
The wonderful rosy color is from simmering the material in a dye bath containing madder extract. As the only tannin in the dye bath was contained in the pear leaves themselves, they didn’t turn out as dark as I usually see them.
The next batch of printing to come out of the dye liquor, in which they have been fermenting, used most of the plant material I found still in my freezer. Should be an interesting.
