I'm really into eco leaves prints. Other than the bright reddish euc leaves, I wanted to have grey or dark outcome but no avail. Just came out the idea .....
朋友說我的植物印染大多是橙紅的效果, 何不嘗試有點其他顏色, 我說植物印染很奇妙, 但有很多限制, 並不是如鮮花顏色繽紛, 要紅有紅, 要紫有紫, 仍在學習研究中, 這次我把已有鐵繡的碎布與葉子一同扎染, 果然有明顯的線紋.
Know that leaves with iron will have dark marks. I tried bundle around iron cans but aweful black. Thought putting iron rusted cotton scraps may help.
I put over the leaves and bundled it.
Opened it with delights.
Euc leaves with dark outlines
There're only two sorts of euc leaves, euc cinerea still reddish.
Rose leave also got rust outline
The yellow flowers are not bold. Just a little color.
A soft scarf made in 12 hours. I'm too impatient. I don't know if it stayed unbundled longer would it be prettier.
During lunch break today I went to the train station to see if there're any abandoned euc leaves. Not much, only the sawed trunks devastated in typhoon
but some fresh leaves thriving from the roots.
Fall is drawing and forecast crispy air this weekend. My plants are getting yellow leaves.
The cabbage sprouts look thriving. I'm no good in planting. Just hope to reap for a single meal.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a colorful weekend.
