And the blanket paper towel

I just used a kitchen paper towel soaked in a weak ferrous sulphate solution and squeezed out and then placed over the onion skin dyed cotton and leaves. I wound it on quite a small solid rod before steaming. I think even this paper might come in useful in some sort of mixed media work later on. It is interesting how the dye from the onion skins has transferred to the paper and the leaves are much darker than the actual fabric piece - almost the exact opposite in terms of hue
