The leaf imprints just found on my way in a park. Simply love the strong and bold prints on fabric.
That's the windfalls of Silk Oak (Grevillea robusta 鐵樺或銀樺).
A good find for me and greeted by the stray cats.
Back home with handful of leaves and can't wait to do experiments........
Placed a few with up and down sides for different effect.
After 1.5 hours boiling the outcome of bold and strong imprints with the down side of leaves.
I done a few scraps prints
After the boiling prints then dyed in the cochineal pot with background of purple.
This sort of oak is a good find for me in Hong Kong since we don't have the oaks as in the States or Europe.
I'll do some more experiments and combine with other leaves to bring out new patterns.
This is a new trial
Simply love the strong olive color - almost the same as fresh leaves !
