dip dyed

A couple of weeks ago, I tried dipping watercolor paper in different dye baths. At my reach, I "only" had three of them. One made with onion skins, one made with avocado skins & iron (rusted, found bits), one made with alder cones & iron. Here are the results. (I posted them on my regular blog already but I thought it'd also go here)

onion's so good !

I will stamp my logo on one side, like on these ones :

They will be sent with any order of naturally dyed items from my shop. I have recently added three lovely cotton batiste scarves, and two brooches (handsewn) hand embroidered with naturally dyed silk threads.
