After a few weeks with sun and heat I was more than ready to open my jars of solar dyed samples I had prepared and stored on the window sill of my studio.

I actually wanted to open just one jar to see what happened but couldn’t help it and opened all 5 of them before I got myself under control again. There were some nice surprises and outcomes and I particular like the patterns created by leaves and rust.
