dye job

jude asked me about coloring shifu using india flint's eco printing process. this is a page of the in-process book "august". every day last august i "did something" to a shifu square, the result is 31 pages not yet bound. it's particularly uneven weaving is nicely matched by the three colors from dyeing. i used a couple of red hollyhock spent blossoms, a little piece of rusty steel, and pressed them in a vinegar bath for several days. i rinsed and dried outdoors.
