Shibori lesson #1b - Mokume

More shibori woodgrain (mokume) this time in black walnut with iron mordant. Black walnut is an aggressive dye, in this sample, it nearly wiped out the design after only ten seconds in the dyebath.
There are a few good sections I can use.
Next time, I will quickly dip or paint the dye on the folds instead of soaking.

Important Side Note:
This chicken chili was delicious and fed the hungry husband

and these peanut butter-nutella brownies were just what we were hankering for
I'm thinking of making these granola bars, but haven't yet.
