I always amazes me how each plant creates a different color!  Depending on the mordant I use and the time of year I pick the plants can change the color completely.  This paj silk scarf was eco-dyed using a iron mordant and the piece was steamed for over 3 hours!  This process is what affixes the tannin colors from the plant on to the silk.  Eucalyptus leaves, the spent flowers from coral bells and asparagus fronds were the plants I chose.  The eucalyptus turned an amazing orange, the coral bell flowers a purple-gray and the asparagus fronds a delicate lime green.   Truly a one of a kind piece!
