Dyeing fabrics outside

1 Rust dyeing fabric1

One of four rusty trays sitting by my back door.
Who cares what visitors think!

Cottons and silk, with rusty things and a touch of cheap black dye (which is blue, not black.  Never buy cheap dyes).

Water occasionally,  (if nature doesn’t) add a sprinkling of salt and leave for four or maybe five weeks to cook.
