This week I'd groups of students done natural prints on scarfs and wool felt flowers. Each of them done two pieces of scarfs with two styles of prints. Quite nice to go with a scarf !
近日為新團體辦的植物印染絲巾, 祗用了兩種不同的桉樹葉 (尤加利) 及玫瑰葉, , 經過兩個多小時的扎作煲熱, 每人的製作不一樣, 有豐富鮮艷, 有簡約清晰, 他們都是第一次接觸這方式的天然植物印染, 感到奇妙新鮮.
Natural printing on fabric with leaves was new to the groups. Made it simple and easy I just used two species of eucalyptus leaves and rose leaves only some with iron mordant to give shades.
I showed them individual leaf prints, overlapped prints, folding methods, tying lines, bundling......
(Before and after picture)
Clear individual leaves prints of euc leaves and rose leaves
Different pieces ......
The overlapped prints with tie lines are rich and some of the marks look funny
This piece is with all euc leaves (silver dollar) so looks bright
Dark and strong red are of iron mordant
Funny faces and marks.....
This looks grasses and flowers
Each of different layout and different outcome
