Colour Project – Brown, Part 8

My Dad has given me lots of rusty stuff, eucalyptus branches, lumps of wood etc  from his shed and garden for the “Brown” project. Here are the results of boiling up 3 bags of mulch he found.

(above) The lightest mulch 2 cottons and a satin silk

Mid brown mulch gave such strong colour that I threw the silk dupion (right) into the pot 1 1/2  hours after the other fabrics.


No colour after 2 hours of boiling!
