How Far Does The Hand Reach - Silk Sample

An 8 inch square of silk sent for this project. It has been very nerve wracking and I am still not sure I am happy with the results. I did spray with 50/50 vinegar and water and that has enhanced the pink shades from the leaves but I am so disappointed in the clarity of the purple small leafed maple prints. The liquid amber leaf and Japanese maple leaves have printed very nicely but I would have like the pale pink of the other prints to be more definite. But what is done is done so I guess this is what I will have to send. Still have the cotton sample to do but that will be a few days as I am off to look after Kate's kids while Jim has a medical procedure so wont be posting for a few days.
