Shifting the Ph After Steaming

When these two pieces came out of the steamer, they were the same colour. Both had an iron blanket - the piece on the left is silk the one on the right is linen. The piece on the right - more about this process tomorrow - was then dipped in a solution of 1 tbsp common salt in a li of water and rinsed well. Nothing seemed to happen at first but as the fabric dried the blue turned to brown. Both of these pieces use resit to create their design. I prefer the natural print effects but learning about how to create different effects should I want to is always interesting and keeps me looking at new possibilities in a week that was fraught with family commitments.
