As I make more prints, I seem to be making more favorites (although there are still a number of ‘OK’ ones also). You try to plan for certain results but you still never really know until the piece is unwrapped.
This scarf was in the same dye bath with my first paper prints. All the tannin (tallow leaves) and iron (pine needles), with a touch of vinegar and onion skins, does create some very dynamic prints. This scarf also had included some fresh hamelia patens (hummingbird bush) leaves that were starting to turn their winter red. They created some hints of green.
Did print a few more papers with fresh botanicals. They turned out very delicate and subtle. Too difficult to get a good photo. The scarf I included in their dye bath will be ready to unwrap in a week or so. I’m trying to be patient.
