Onion Skins and Teabags

While I still had the onion sin dye pot from the fabric examples I decided to try what would happen if I put some usded and dried teabags into the pot. The bottom left is the original teabag. I aways let the tea dry in the bag before removing it to extract the tannin colour from the tea. The top right is after boiling for 30 minutes and the bottom one has had a post dye iron dip. I did quite a few of each type as I am thinking of a new art piece using teabags and having the different colourways may be useful
