I love the way black dyes if one doesn't use loads of the dye powder. It comes out very mottled in a grey brown colouring. In fact it looks like puddles of water in a muddy field and I was inspired by a piece last year to do a small table mat with leaves on it to look like the debris found in a muddy field! In the top picture the brown in the piece was more pronounced, while in the two lower pieces the grey was more in evidence. Probably different batches of dye!

  2. Wonderful. Some very interesting effects.
