We had a great time making red/pink colors from the last workshop in Bryn Athyn. We used
madder root, cochineal and did a sample with brazil wood and used an alum mordant and an
iron buff mordant.
From left to right we used cochineal, madder (top) with alum mordant and madder
(bottom) with iron buff. Then brazil wood (top) with alum mordant and brazil wood
(bottom) with iron buff.
We tied both alum and iron mordanted pieces while we waited for the cochineal
(below images), madder and brazil wood to steep.
The best part is always unwrapping the present!
The dog of the yard was territorial of the dyed pieces.
Come play at our yellow workshop Nov. 29th!
