Eco dyed silk. A variety of eucalyptus leaves and onion skins were used. This was after an hour or so on the steamer, leaving it for longer would have produced a more prominent print. #ecodyeing #dye #fabricdesign #plants #plantdyeing #onionskin #eucalyptus #printing #silk #handmade

helenkassila : didn't realise marigolds released colour! what are the ingrediants/the recipe for dyeing with flowers - or is that your secret Nina?
creativelifestyle : @helenkassila The marigolds make a lovely bright lemon colour (see yellow scarf l dyed on the far right of the photo). The flowers are edible too! I made my last batch by pulling the flowers apart and heating them up on the stove in water until almost boiling. Turned the heat down and let them simmer for about 10mins. Strained off and poured the water off into a jar. I wanted to dye a fine cotton material so it had to be prepared with an alum mordant solution to help the dye to stick to the fabric. If you have silk or wool (being animal protein) it may not need a mordant. I kept the scarf in the solution for about 24hrs and then hung it out to dry. You can continue to use the dye solution if there's still colour in it. If you want a lighter colour, just leave yr fabric in the dye for less time. Heating it up will speed up the process. It's all experimental! Give it a go Helen. It's do much fun and there's lots of info online to help guide you along. I still have my L plates on :)
creativelifestyle : I have run out of gas at home this morning so l actually boiled the kettle and poured the water into a jar with the flower petals. I will leave it to brew overnight :)
creativelifestyle : *correction to my first comment - l kept the batch on the stove for just under an hour, not 10 mins :p
helenkassila : thanks for making the effort to share these flower dyeing instructions with me Nina. Recently I had a white linen shirt drying on the line and now it has a few random yellow markings on it, which I think came from a yellow flowering tree near my washing line so I can see that yellow flowers can stain! Might have to go with it and brew a batch some time... tah hun x

hey_mama_wolf : Usually it fades to grey, but a pretty one. Try a bath of ammonia as modifier, you'll get a greyish turqoise.
thisismoonlight : @hey_mama_wolf thanks Jule! I did put a little vinegar in there so we shall see 😮

creativelifestyle : Bi-carb water is on the left ...
peregrinationz : Awesome @creativelifestyle! Totally alchemy, the biochemist in me (from another lifetime) is crowing a bit 😂 you could try it with other things too - I think by rights it should shift the cabbage towards blue rather than purple, but I could be wrong about that! ☺️
peregrinationz : 😄 feeling the excitement @petalplum xxx

thisismoonlight : @daisycreatesinsussex or print this picture on fabric :) I like your thinking!
susanreesosborne : Just left my not terribly helpful comment on the blog. I'm barracking for the bottlebrush.
xmyfx : I would choose whatever you have the most of that produces the color you like best ☺️👍
thisismoonlight : @susanreesosborne thanks Suse! Will see how much I can scrounge! Have you ever used wattle? It's the last one on my list to test out.
thisismoonlight : @xmyfx thanks Myf, I think I'm getting there today after testing a few more samples!
margariteandrosa : Such a good question! A nice way to put the eternal dilemma for the dyer, what to use and how. But I am not sure if I could point at one plant, as I think you will need to try them all: plants could give different results depending on the stage of growth they are. So if we are now in Autumn, well, they might yield a different tone. Also, the fibre you are now using is different, so they might dye differently. I also found that in larger amounts the colours are different, usually lighter of course. And finally, well you can also resource at drying the flowers, or freezing them, which, will again, change the equation. 😐 Not much help really...
susanreesosborne : I've not tried wattle but I'll be interested to see your experiment because come July, my outer suburban bushy hippy suburb absolutely explodes with yellow wattle. We even have a wattle festival!
thisismoonlight : @margariteandrosa thanks Raquel, this totally confirms my thinking, so I'm glad for your thoughts. I have started trialing the dyes on small scraps and already it is helping me make sense of it all. :-)
