Natural dyes

One thing that came up during tutorials was that my work is often monochromatic and i think it would be fair to say that i shy away from using colour. Having taken this into account I tried to think of ways of bringing colour into my work that would be fitting specifically for this project. The result was making natural dyes for coloured paper from onion skin, sage leaves and saffron. I wanted to do try making colours from scratch the way a perfumer captures essential oils from raw materials.
