Great idea! I'll have to give cardamom a try.

Thanks so much for your kind words! Do post pictures if you ever try it out!
Please do! I would have loved this when I was in school, and it's much tastier than play-dough :)

Making Your Own Stunning Nectarine Tart From Scratch
Yep, it grows everywhere where I grew up. I used it most often to soothe stinging nettle burns. I was really excited to discover that something so readily available (and free!) worked so well as a dye!
Thank you, and thanks for reading! :)
That's a good place to look! (Though it's too late in the season to find any right now, at least where I am.) It won't necessarily be right next to the water, but in areas where the soil is swampy or muddy. It has very distinctively shaped lobed leaves, pictured under step 4, and it has a thick stalk that's slightly translucent and slimy when you cut it open. That slime is what's used as a skin balm. Later in the summer it has either yellow or orange flowers. I've only used the orange variety for dyeing, but I'm looking forward to trying yellow sometime. There are some good identification videos on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzDL2KDnDIo
