Sweetgum Plus More

Had more Sweetgum fun. The first two pictures are silk habotai with sweetgum, dried rosemary stems, bauhinia plus miscellaneous all dipped in an iron solution. I love the rosemary resist. It was dipped in an iron solution which gave it that halo. This was then boiled in an iron solution bath with rusty bits added.

The third photo is a cotton/silk fabric. I used primarily oak leaves, pear leaves and bamboo. All leaves were dipped in an iron solution and boiled in an iron solution bath with rusty bits added.

The bath and dip I used for both was from an iron extract which was brown in color. I have prepared my own solution using rusty bits which is turning a very dark gray. Will be interesting to see if here is any difference.
