Today I am doing something fun - experimenting with stains from natural food products.All of these were prepared in my kitchen with ingredients from the grocery store! 1) AVOCADO SKIN (PINK) To make this stain, I peeled an avocado, boiled the skin and pit, and strained it.
The stain looks light pink, but turned the wood a honey oak color.It actually turned out very beautiful.2) ONION SKIN (YELLOW) Boiled onion skins make a bright yellow dye that is often used for Easter eggs.
Unfortunately, I found that the yellow was not as bright on wood as it is on eggs.This stain was rather disappointing.3) CRUSHED BLUEBERRIES (PURPLE) For this stain, I simply crushed a small bowl of fresh blueberries.
The mixture looked very dark, but the intense color did not transfer well to the wood.4)POMEGRANATE (PINK) For the pomegranate stain, I also simply crushed the fruit and used the juice.This stain did not disappoint.
Definitely the most dramatic of the day, it resulted in a bright pink color.5) RED CABBAGE (BLUE) If you boil red or purple cabbage, the resulting stain is a dark blue color.This is a well-known dye, but did not do much on wood.
6) RED CABBAGE + VINEGAR...
