Natural water colours

We had an evening of natural dying,

The various colours that can be made from plants

On paper, without my usual tieing,

Using shaving cream to marble dye

Using things like pureed flax,


citric acid, salt, vinegar and wax,

The teacher's example of textures that can be made

Using shaving cream, tumeric and other plants to get a marbled look

That changed the dye’s colour while they were drying.

Before and after on my experimenting piece

Everyone's work laid out to dry
