Oops – forgot to actually post this earlier….
With all the maple seeds flying around right now, I thought I’d see what they had to offer in a dye pot.
And the answer is: not much! Just a bit of a greenish sort of color but hardly worth the effort to collect more. One more thing ticked off the list of things to try.
I am trying out young maple leaves that came down with some wind we had. The leaves in the fall give a luscious dark purply black. Not sure what these young ones will do. They are in the pot as I type.
