Different strength, different iron blanket

My husband, Rob, has cracked his ribs so less hours a day now to work on my art. He needs to be helped out of bed, showered and dressed and generally looked after. I am told the worst will be the first 10 days but he is definitely in more pain than when he had his hip replacement. Anyway here is another lot of samples for my May eco diary. The one of the left is silver dollar gun and the one on the right green leafed maple at the top and purple leafed maple at the bottom. Both had an iron blanket of strong iron sulphate on paper towel. The paper towel samples seem to allow the saddening (purple hue) to the background fabric which is in contrast to when I use watercolour paper as the iron blanket.
