I guess the squirrels missed them, but I didn't.
To play around with them I took some of my poorly dyed material and threw it into the "recipe" *
The results were so warm and complex I decided to re dye some of my earlier pieces.
The results from one of the earlier pounded pieces was so NICE.....
I took the rest of the rust stained pieces........
and threw them in too. **
The weather has been so beastly here I can only work in the basement... and that means small amounts.
* break apart and boil in water
** wear gloves!
