Background with cauliflower dye
I cooked (okay, really Jim did) my yummy purple cauliflower from the farmers market last night. See it hiding on the left side in the vegetable picture? It really was some of the best I've ever had and thought the dried juice from the water it was cooked in looked lovely dried on my white plate. Which gave me an idea- how would it look on paper. So, down to the kitchen I went, watercolor paper in hand, to try it out. I have some plastic pipettes and after trying some on my craft pad and dipping the paper, I opted for pipetting it onto the paper instead. Some of the sugars in the juice burned when I got a little crazy with the heat tool. I think it is a wonderful color and dyed a paper towel, too.
