A Peak inside the Bundle

So here are some of the bits from the bundle. The forest tulip leaves and Japanese maple leaves are straight from the freezer from last Autumn, the little round silver dollar gum leaves are fresh. There are bits of steel wool, rusty nails and rusty washers and an old dog chain to provide the rust element. There is no "blanket" as the white vinegar in the water and the rusty bits create there own mordant/modifier. In the dye bath I also put a laundry bag full of onion skins
