I experimented with banana peels this week. There were a few more than overripe bananas left over, and I thought they might give a nice tone and pattern. I spread out the silk, laid out the bananas (cut in half), wrapped it up tightly, and put it in a zip lock bag for quick-composting.
The bag was left on the window sill for about 3 weeks.
The result was not quite as imagined. The silk took on a very subtle champagne tone with a few gold colored spots. The pattern is almost invisible.
I kind of like the feel of it, how airy and subtle it is, but I think I will overdye it with turmeric.
What do you think?
