So Now For a More controlled Print

I arranged the leaves in a more definite pattern rather than all over this time. I tried eco dying with gingko in the Autumn but didn't get a good result. I do love their distinctive shape. I am going to use a logwood blanket so the background will be lavender. I am using a cotton mortdated blanket that didn't seem to want to take the logwood dye so I placed it in the microwave for 4 minutes. II have used microwave dying with procion dyes and the fabric in a plastic bag. It goes very quickly so I am now wondering if I could microwave natural dyes instead of steaming. Something to try maybe
