Cold bundling is SUB ZERO, WOW

Was it worth the wait?
                         You tell ME..................

Cold bundles left in a container full of left over cold dye liquid for 28 days, and this is the result:
(mind you it stunk, but that is a small price to pay), they were washed in the washing machine:




that was the dried red roses

detail from Grevilla robusta,
see the leave on top and below the brush flowers


something as simple as slices of lemon
produces a result like this

those dried roses seem to work better than fresh ones....

yes India,
they are roses I buy from the market occasionally.
I just let them dry naturally and leave in a corner until I find a use for them, as they smell as nice as lavender and Eucalyptus......
They produced a very strong colour in the cold bundle, just as well I made a pattern..........

love the results - dried red roses works better in cold bundles than in hot bundles - than they will turn into a brownish to nothing one. I have one rosebud in the freezer, wonder what that will do..
