After walnut dye

After walnut dye, originally uploaded by jckirner.

Such intriguing results from the walnut dye experiment.

Color catcher darkened to resemble leather, the bamboo batting absorbed far more dye than I expected, the cotton print came out iffy, and the embroidered fine cotton took on a beautiful tone.

5 hours in the pot for everything but the color catcher and embroidered cotton which had just 30 minutes.
