I’ve spent the past few weeks investigating eco printing, from books and on Youtube.
Some colour on the paper so I thought they looked promising.
How wrong could I be, bluebells with virtually no colour at all.
Also I’m having these printed as cards to put in my Etsy shop.
And so the experiments continued, each time the results differed, even using the same mordant and plant material, I found the process so gripping I cooked and dyed until I ran out of watercolour paper.
My house may smell like a pickle factory, ( or is it rotten cabbage? ), but I’m very pleased with some of my pieces, I’ll show you in another post soon.
