Tapestry and other musings
The softness of the pomegranate with logwood juxtaposed with what looks like rust markings on top make for quite a dramatic and lovely cloth. When I dyed w ith pomegranate, I cut them in half and dyed half in a copper pot, giving me an intense golden yellow and half in an enamel pot that surprisingly gave me purple and then black. The black came from leaving some of the cloth in longer and realizing that the enamel pot had some rust in it, thus turning the cloth black. It truly is fascinating to see how water, container, etc, gives such unique colors.
Hi Marti, thanks for sharing, it sounds as if you had some very interesting results, unfortunately I don't have an enamel or a copper pot but I do have some copper piping so will give it a go. I was using only the skins, my daughter ate the fruit but it will be interesting to try.Although I used a metal jar lid I think the rust looking marks are mainly down to the logwood though the black marks are from the jar.
