Another experiment of plants imprints just done. Simply a leather clutch of botanical printing.
Raw leather printed with plants grasped from my urban yard. Swatches cut into pieces and sewed the purses.
This is layout on leather.
Background pink dye from logwood chips.
After some time of heating, botanical marks and dyes imprinted on leather then mounted to air dry.
Before and after of the leather prints.
Swatches sewed into purses. Size of this is good as cosmetic bag.
Another piece of rectangle size swatch just three-fold made into a clutch.
A simple clutch for little things.
So I’m indulged in experiments and my samples are sometimes made into something practical.
The video is about the making of prints. Hope you get inspired.
