A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to try eco printing on paper.
I had absolutely no idea of what I was doing,
but the results of pieces that I had seen on the internet
were really appealing to me.
This is from the first batch that I eco printed
These two pages were together, with the leaves between them -
a nice echo!
I was pretty amazed that the prints came out so well.
Here are a few more from that batch:
In this first batch,
my papers were totally submerged in the dye bath,
and held down with a large, heavy plate.
The watercolor paper was even imprinted from the leaves.
I steamed this second, smaller batch of papers:
I think I like the results from the first batch better,
but I'm very pleased that both results were acceptable.
