Yay it's done! Well almost. I've ironed off some of the wax, but the dyes still have to be steam-set, which will remove some more, then washing will remove the rest.

I'm glad I chose to go purple-y with the darks instead of green, which was my original intent. I didn't do my usual crackle-dyeing as the final step, since I didn't want to mess with the patterns already formed by the leaves. I want to do a couple more in this series... will start on those next.
