Eco dye Results on water colour papaer

The paper used changes the prints quite drastically. Water colour paper was recommended in the instructions I followed for my experiments. It absorbs the water quickly and becomes almost card like in texture before it dries again. You can see liquidamber leaves especially on the left and some ginkgo on the piece on the right. The darker colours have been introduced from the iron in the water I soaked the papers in. I thought the water colour paper would take the imprints the best but it was the lightest imprint of the three paper types I tried. This level of imprint would be nice as a background layer - if i can bare to put something on top of the imprints. I am thinking of combining the pages into a mini book for reference
