I decided to add another layer to my sugar syrup resisted silk.
Why not play with pieces that are still players?
I didn't mean for this to appear as chains,
but I like it.
The resist used here is soy wax applied with a cut up car wash sponge.
I also screened some Presist on another piece of silk
which already had two layers of sugar syrup resist.
My Presist is very old and
I thought it was way over the hill,
so I did not expect much in the way of resist.
I was pleasantly surprised!
Once again, a huge thanks to Lisa Kerpoe for her great book,
and all of the inspiration that came along with it!
The Sassafras trees on the golf course are lovely right now.
Many are scarlet, and others are on their way to being so.
I wondered how they would print on watercolor paper,
so I brought home a little branch and gave them a ride.
These papers aren't quite dry just yet,
but I can see tinges of red orange here and there.
Here is another page
(actually the top of a stack of pages)
with one solitary leaf that shows great promise:
And I'm also playing around with other presentations of
Euca leaves on silk:
This is just a segment of a scarf that I eco-dyed two days ago.
I've done another one since.
Not sure how I like the blocks with the Euca inside.
What do you think?
