Avocado is probably my favorite dish so far, so eating a lot of avocados in the last few weeks hasn’t been too hard! I also kept the skins (and stones for future use) in the freezer. Let’s try tye dye vinyl method for this.
Soaking avocado skin in water and heating- tye dye vinyl- step 1
The fabric was treated with soy milk and left for treatment for more than a month. The avocado skins were soaked in water and heated, and after 24 hours, the mushrooms were squeezed with a piece of muslin to produce a beautiful deep red tye dye vinyl.
I used avocado skins in a 1: 1 ratio to the weight of the fabric, but I saw that there was still a lot of dyeing potential in the dye bath, and then I dyed two more scarves.
From left to right, the fabrics are bamboo silk, organic cotton and hemp / cotton. I also dyed another cotton scarf that is not in the picture. Signs are created by various fastening and cutting methods to resist.
The fabric on the top left was changed to iron water to get a beautiful purple color.
I am currently doing lightness tests on aldercone and avocado skin dye. The lower part on the right is treated with aluminum acetate as a control.You can check out finished products of similar experiments here
