wicking from top to bottom

the top half has been dipped in a cow parsley/onion/tealeave dye + tartaric acid for a couple of hours, resulting in a pale yellow with a few brighter spots

the subtle change in color is
masterfull. like organic things
happen...like looking into some kind of flower...but there, the
shading is reverse...or maybe?
it's an ocean thing....
beautiful. you are very very
good at the dye......

thank you Dru, I think, no am certain I will be dyeing more with this wicking technique, sideways, any which way, I'm guessing the effects will be surprising and perhaps beautiful as well
