Natural Dyeing


Based on our resulted four factors, both Ciara and myself started experimenting using natural wood dyeing, based on The Woodworker’s Gazette, 1997. I used turmeric, sumac, coffee, blueberry and red cabbage with boiled water, and soak the wooden pieces for one whole day to saturate. The use of natural dyes enhances the wood cravings and boosts the sense of the real material. It was a new experience and impressively resulted. Then glazed it with olive oil to protect the final result and prevent the color from being fade.
