Exciting colours for the liquidamber

This cotton was treatede with soda ash, then dipped and dried in soy milk twice. The leaves from the liquidamber which had fallen with the strong winds last week were soaked in iron water and then arranged on the cotton. Cling wrap was laid across the leaves and the whole wrapped tightly around a plastic pipe and tied. After two hours steaming definited colour can be seen in the bundle. I wonder what the imprint will be like inside
