DELICATE PURPLE PINK FROM THE MORNING GLORY FLOWERS


The morning glory flowers were done in iceblock form and wrapped in the fabric. The photos unfortunately don't do the pink justice. It is quite delicate. This week I tried the Davidson Plum and it is a similiar pretty pink.....

fungi found in the Michael Nunen rainforest



Only photos of delightful fungi but not enough to experiment with in the cauldron.
The morning glory flowers dyed a beautiful pink which I will keep you in suspense with till next time. The velcro vine came out a soft green grey but I think I will need to play with mordants to see what else I can get. Granddaughters arriving next week so the pot will have to be shelved for a while.

cauldron out again

Having more plays, singing over the pot, tossing the weeds in. Trying purple morning glory and another on which I have only just found out is a weed. Lots of people have it growning for hedges. We will soon find out if it is worthy to play with or not. Morning glory has a beautiful pink happening. Photos next time.
