Polygonum Tinctorium Palette

polygonum tinctorium palette

Three colours from my Japanese indigo:

blue - dyed with fresh leaves as described previously

yellow - the leaves from which blue was extracted were boiled and used in a hot dyebath on alum mordanted silk

green - the yellow was overdyed with more fresh leaves

LOVE! How wonderful that something can be used and reused. In this case, it makes the object even more intriguing and special. :)
