    You have achieved such wonderful results, markings that I so love. I’ve never dyed paper but have spent many a happy hour with red onion skins, copper pot, a splash of vinegar and cloth and have gotten similar results but also when I have just loaded my copper pot with red onion skins, water and vinegar, heated for a short time and left outside for a few days, voila! without cloth in the pot, the most wonderful green color has magically appeared. Then I pull out the skins, leaving just the dyed liquid, put my cloth into the pot, let it live there for a few days and it turns into such gorgeous green cloth.
