Eco print ref book 植物印染參考

Recent experiments of different leaves on different papers......
Mogi, "mum has made a eco print book for her ref."

A little journal with nuno felt cover,  with a paper of eco printed leaf sewed on it.

Inside cover of nuno felt texture.

 Pages are marked with leaves and sorts of papers used for the experiment.
 Intended to put some rose petals over the leaves to make some pink marks.  Different sorts of leaves picked from the mountain behind my apartment were tried.
But not all got nice prints.  Ferms have no clear color or outlines. 
 Among all, the paper bark tree, eucalyptus cinerea and maple are quite good on some sorts of papers.
 With iron mordanted lines, they look pretty.
 Windfalls of this sort of euc leaf is very nice.
 Outlines of paper-bark tree are sharp.
Maple is good. 
 Here are the steps of making. 
 After placing the leaves on papers, steamed and binded the signatures.  Made the nuno felt cover. sewed the paper cover of leaf print.  A little journal is made. 
  Not all the pages are nice. I marked the species and paper used.  That's a good ref. for my sourcing local leaves to make paper prints.
 Over the weekend with hubby we walked up and down the mountain, to the sea shore, picked some local leaves to do another experiments for my upcoming eco print journal. 

 This is my ref. book of eco print.....
 a journal for my path of eco print..........

Mogi, "mum, that's enough I'm tired......."
- Well, until next time.....  THANK YOU all !
