walnut pallette

walnut pallette, originally uploaded by jckirner.

The button batch came out in intriguing ways. I didn't bother to pre-separate out the buttons, just grabbed a handful of light colored ones and tossed them in the pot with the walnut.

Cracks have been enhanced in a wonderful way! And I've dyed a bigger swatch of muslin which resulted in a warm mushroom tone with random darker spots. Love the darker spots and will wrap a walnut directly to see if i can achieve more dark spots on the fabric.

Currently in the pot - a swatch of burlap and one of Irish linen...


  1. love how the buttons came out, cool idea. i have a pot ready to go tomorrow.

  2. Great experiments! Wonderful effect on the buttons!
