Natural Dye workshop Day 5

These samples are the results of my exploring color using a base color of natural dye and then modifying it using ferrous sulfate as well as one dip in indigo. From left to right, in sets of three, are cochineal, madder, Osage orange, pomegranate and cutch. The colors are a little bit off in hue, but I think you have a good idea of what can be done with just a few colors of dyes to work with. I am going to continue this exploration of color in natural dyes over the next couple of months, creating a sample notebook of recipes to use for future reference in dyeing wool for my tapestries.
