  3. Test dye color by dipping a paper towel or spare tree directly into the dyebath. If color is too light, add more dye; if color is too dark, add more water.

  5. Remove the husks from the dye bath and place on paper towels to dry.

  6. Make sure to orient the husks in the way you want them to dry around the dried corn.
