Iron and Onions

Colour Project – Brown, Part 4

               My first attempt at rusting – an old iron lever folded around light weight cotton fabric sprayed with vinegar, covered in plastic and left for several days.





(Above) One dye bath of red and brown onion skins – skins were folded in fabric and tied.

Lots of lovely fine cotton though. The other sleeve is rusted above.
