We also experimented with eco-printing. We used silk blend scarves, eucalyptus, amaranth, and maple leaves. First we soaked the scarves in a mixture of water and vinegar (sorry can't remember the ratio), laid the scarves out and placed the leaves along one half of the length of the scarf.
Next some onion skins were added for good measure...
Water added and set to boil overnight. We kept going out to see what was happening if anything.
After getting them out of the pot, this is what they looked like before unwrapping.
And then it came time to unwrap. Here is half of mine. You can see that the portion of the scarf that was most exposed is darker and shows the resist of the wrapping tape.
Here is a closer look.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. I'm off to see if my creative muse will talk to me today.
