March Crown: Practical Science: Tinctures

This was probably the most fun of the projects. I love looking at all the possible variations and trying a number of them. The project was planned in February and executed in March.

Dyeing with Tannic Acid and Iron: Black Walnut Husks

For documentation I followed the addage:
What did they do?
What did you do?
If you did something different explain why.
Also use citations; including primary sources where possible.

This was a winning entry in a field of 7.
