solar dyeing- one willow tree on linen

This willow sapling has been wrapped in linen, then layers and layers of clingfilm to maintain the moisture for approximately 6 months. There was a mixture of green and orangey tones, which later turned to varying tones of brown. There are definite markings of the tree. Again the linen had started to deteriorate. The most amazing thing- the main stem of the sapling is still green- it is still alive after 6 months!!
