Plant Pigments -- Coreopsis
With hope in my heart, I placed the flowers in water.
After a night of soaking the water turned a lovely shade of amber. After boiling it for hours and hour it turned a dreggy green brown.
I did a little paint test. It flowed like a light watercolor.
I soaked the bottom of a sheet of cotton page.
Not a raging success but it was fun.
