We're into Feb and Lunar New Year falls on the 19th, that means spring is in the corner. My botanical prints should be thriving with golden color or brighter.
已經立春了, 農曆年下星期就到了, 聽到春天的步伐嗎 ? 我的植物移印染也該有春日萌芽的金黃嫩綠吧 ! 因此用了兩片不同絲質料放上不同桉樹葉 (尤加利), 橡樹葉與桔葉作的效果.
So I made two pieces prints with assorted eucalyptus, mandarin leaves and oak leaves. One piece of gorgette silk and the other is Thai silk.
Oak is always my fav. Love it's shape and brown color.
Eucalyptus cinerea never a fail.
With the branch bark and the leaves made the outlines
The down side of oak leaf is always a good print
Two sorts of eucalyptus
Euc cinerea gives more bright yellow on Thai silk
I thank so much for my friend Melinda brought me the ingredients for the yummy prints.
