I have been collecting onion skins and decided to experiment with them on pre-mordanted cotton fabric.
One piece of fabric got wrapped around the onion skins in a bundle and one just had a swim in the boiled up onion skins
The bundle was put in a steamer (not emerged in water) whilst the other continued to swim with skins!
This was the bundle before unwrapping.
Both were "cooked" for the same amount of time and had the same weight of onion skins. The resulting pictures do not do justice to the colours and texture achieved. I think I need to take some outside. The bottom image shows a little of the stitching I have started.
