I've had a fun week of printing leaves for my weekly leaf series. First I did several botanical prints dipping the leaves in a copper solution before steaming. These are all on silk broadcloth and the copper gives a much more delicate look than my usual iron dip. This group is ready for the next five weeks of stitching.
I also did several cyanotypes using green fabric treated with the chemicals.
I had made up an indigo pot because I wanted a piece of indigo blue about 24" square, after I got that done I decided it was play time. I let some local friends know that I had a pot ready and they were welcome to come play and this morning that's what we did.
We played early because the temperature this afternoon are supposed to be 108 degrees, way too hot to play. The square piece I did is below, underneath the rusted piece I'll be stitching to it.
