fruit dyeing

i know this looks like wound dressings but it's actually stage 1 of my next experiment with fruit dyeing - i got some good results last year dyeing raw silk with blood oranges but forgot to take photos :(

we had some oranges in the fruit bowl and some elderly strawberries in the fridge so in they went. add some damp flannel and mush around the plastic container and see what happens. i also added some salt a bit later. and a spin in the microwave for a couple of minutes.

more photos tomorrow to see what has 'taken' - of course if it happened to your best white cotton shirt you would never get the stains out.....
