    Ooh that did come out beautiful! How enduring do you think the color will be?

    • I know that with time and in constant sunlight the onion skin orange fades a bit, and it is probably true for the other colours. I have used these colours in a wall hanging in my house, (not direct sunlight) and it has been up for a year and there is no change in the colours.

      I haven’t tried using any form of mordant, which would probably help the colours last longer. A friend and I are wondering if the the long time (2 days), and low temperature make natural colour stronger than traditional boiling. We will have to experiment!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting!
