Pomegranate, Blackberry and Beets .. oh my!









I know you have waited a while for this video
gentle viewers ...
and I hope you enjoy it..
I had several experiments that 
failed 
and realized that I really do my best work 
in playing with color and techniques...




and 
NOT 
in scientific study..
so here are a few fun things to do
with fruit and veggies..

don't fret about how much fruit and veg to use
just cut up a few berries or a few slices of beet and 
play with it...

Definitely let your dye bath sit.. 
I put mine in the fridge
and left the fruit in ..
I boiled the pomegranate skin as well as the seeds..


Enjoy and play with it...

Hope you have a really splendid weekend!!


Ciao, Ciao!

I have a blackberry bush and can't wait for the fruit to come on (right now it's flowering) so I can make some of these papers. I'm always glad when you share your experiments and I love this one. I've never even held a pomegranate before, so this will be a new experience for me. BTW, don't you just LOVE those Lock & Lock containers? Thanks for all the tips, too.
