Snapping Turtles and Japanese Maple eco-dyeing
And now on to surface design. I was inspired by some of the eco-prints I showed you last week so I wanted to try some of my local flora. I thought I would try some leaves from the Japanese maple tree. When I went out to collect them I found the tree loaded with red airplane seeds. So I got some of them too. Here are my results. Isn't it great to get two colors from the same dye bath?
