Silk Print

This was a piece of blue silk scoured with Fairy detergent and mordanted in PAS.. The spidery imprints are red Japanese maple the round ones blue cotinus and the yellow ones small leafed green maple. A strong ferrous sulphate blanket was placed over the leaves using a paper towel wrung out for the blanket. The bundling and steaming process is as previously described. I have also used this print to manipulate on Spoonflower and have fabric printed from but it isnt back yet. It will eventually show up on my blog
