Forgot the Paper!!

Was reminded, when I saw a friend’s post today, that I forgot to include pictures of the paper I had also done when I processed the pieces shown in yesterday’s post. These papers were done in the same bath as the cotton/silk scarf seen below.

For the paper prints I used sweetgum leaves, oak leaves, bamboo, rosemary stalks and pear leaves. The paper was boiled for only 2 hours as opposed to the 3 hours I use for fabric. The bath had green tea and some rusty tomato cage pins.

Tried to get some color onto paper prints but my initial attempt, a couple of months ago, was very disheartening. Will have to make that my next paper project.
