And Wonderful Paper too

I used watercolour paper dipped in a ferrous iron solution as a blanket in the eco dying and here is one of the pages. If there is anything I am disappointed about, it would be the silver dollar gum leaves not printing in the wonderful tangerine colours that they do on silk. I am wondering if I need to use a vinegar spray to increase acidity . The maple have printed beautifully as always and the gold in the top right corner is a coreopsis. I plants some of these especially for dying but the clump is still developing so I only have a limited number of flowers at this stage
