Creativity is doing whatsoever enjoying 自我享受的創作

Can't believe this kind of eucalyptus leave can do the bright red

dyeing. I tried a few kinds of euc leaves. All those were of long and narraw can only give brownish green. I bought these fresh round ones in a florist. I bundled with a silk chiffon and just steamed for 30-min without any mordants. Let it stay in the pot for a few hours it come out so strong and bold prints. I'm happy with this.沒想到片片綠葉竟會做出鮮艷的印染, 先前用拾來的細長桉樹葉效果一般, 日前在花店買到這些入口圓狀桉樹葉, 祗須包扎著葉子在鍋上隔水蒸熱 30分鐘, 待六小時便可. Prints on a white chiffon is sharp and airy. 我個人覺得以雪紡印染效果最好, 很輕柔.

I want an eco dyed fabric not only draped like this. I will play my magic to make it a unique
piece with my nuno felt skill. Hope to show you soon. 印染在雪紡即可成為一塊圍巾, 但我想利用nuno felt 技巧做件更有創意的衣物, 讓我容後展示.

"Creativity means loving whatsoever you want to do - enjoying it, as a gift of existence" - someone's quote. Creating is such a beautiful thing if you wish to. I'm so honored to have featured in Creating Success Around the World Knowing you is a great pleasure. We can inspire each other.
