Iris Paint Results

These are the painting results from the first set of iris juice experiment.  I used a 20/0 liner brush to paint on Strathmore Series 300 Bristol vellum finish paper. 

Some would say using this brush the way I do is the hard way but it works for me!

The first three 1/2" circles showed green with the iris juice that had been treated with alum in various ways,
dried and reconstituted with distilled water and gum arabic.

After sitting for a month the iris juice with no alum has all produced only brown shades of paint.
