Pastels from Local Plants

This batch of plants gave soft pastel colors. 
Top row, left to right: red croton leaves, red ti leaves. The croton leaves gave a slighty more yellow green and the ti leaves gave a minty green. 
Second row, left to right: ukiuki berries (gave a pale lavender color), flower of the red ginger (gave a soft pink or rose). 
Third row: coffee leaves (a butterscotch gold color) 
These are all silk chiffon or crepe scarves with alum as the mordant.
