The results from using the Weld extract are on the left. The extract was much greener than the flowers. It could be that a little extract goes a long way. I used the extract at 1.5%, 5%, and 10% for light, medium, and dark shades. The green skeins on the far right have been modified with iron. They appear avocado green to the eye. The green doesn't show up so much in the photo but is very predominant in real life. The lightest shade appears chartreuse to the eye. The dye from the Weld flowers was more yellow. Again, it could be due to the concentrated nature of the extracts.
I dyed with Fustic today and I have Quecitron steeping for tomorrow's dye session. I also will post the pictures of the results of my Madder experiment. It didn't turn out as I had hoped but was an interesting learning experience none the less. It will be interesting to see what happens to all these colors when they hit the Indigo dyebath. That will be toward the very end. Much more to come! -Renee
