No black yet

18 Aug

Well, I got some nice tannin golds from the persimmon. I used a bit of iron with one skein. They are displayed on top of a southern Lao cotton blanket. These skeins are destined to be over dyed with drought lichen to see what other color combinations lurk here in my valley.

  1. Persimmon Recap (Diospyros texana) | debmcclintock - July 20, 2022

    […] I do filter and just dye with the liquid, just submerge yard or fabric in and circulate.  You will see color strike.  It is like an indigo or walnut bath, a substantive bath so no prep necessary.  You can experiment with overdyeing, mordant or afterbaths for other color variation. At this point I discard the fruit.  https://debmcclintock.me/2012/09/02/greens-over-or-under/  https://debmcclintock.me/2011/08/18/no-black-yet/ […]
