My son likes the idea of this one. He thinks the more spinach we use for dye, the less he will have to eat. Spinach makes a very pretty green dye.
2 cups fresh spinach
1 quarter water
stove or heating source
large enamel or stainless steel (not aluminum) pot
study wooden or plastic stirring utensil
container to collect dye
material to dye
1. Combine spinach and water in the pot.
2. Simmer for 30 minutes.
3. Strain mixture and discard the leaves, pressing to release all of the dye.
4. Add the material to be colored to the dye.
5. Let the material soak in the dye until the desired color intensity is reached.
