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.
