Description

The use of steam to extract color from plants bundled within fabric can yield darker and more intense color while using less water compared to immersion dyeing (Kadolph & Casselman, 2004; Flint, 2008). Steaming procedures include steam from a pot on a fire (Flint, 2008), stove top (Kadolph & Casselman, 2004), and electric skillet (Feldberg, 2014), while procedures for a pressure cooker are less known, perhaps due to its rare use in today’s kitchen. The purpose of this project was to use a pressure cooker to extract color from late summer plants.
