Today's date is 1/3/13, I just have to do a post.
In a recent post, I mentioned using onion skins to dye my silk scarf. Then I realised that I hadn't posted about it, so here it is.
It was very easy actually. I used India Flint's Eco Colour again (getting value for having bought the book!).
I laid out the scarf, folded it in half lengthways, and the put pieces of onion skin, laid out artistically of course, along the scarf. Then I sprayed it with vinegar, rolled it up and put it in a ziplock bag. I left it out in the glasshouse (during the December summer weather) for 10 days. I rinsed it a couple of times, with a small amount of vinegar in the final rinse.
I had used a small amount of red onion and red onion skin and that showed up too.
