I love how these came out! I have some black walnut dye I'll have to try with the copper wire. Nice!

and don't forget the tin cans (thanks to Deanna)...and copper pennies too (the older ones before 1970 have more copper content)...and I used block walnut un-hulled seeds, as well as lots of dry plant material including marigolds. Also, I reheated many times over the several weeks till by the end there was almost no liquid left. Have fun.
