Oak Leaves

This shows the types of print (rather than resist ) that I get from oak leaves. It might be OK if I do some stitching around the shapes but it is not a great print as far as clarity goes. I am thinking of trying other ways of encouraging the print to be more defined. As you can see eco printing is an imprecise art and not all prints are a great success. I do have far less failures since taking Kathy's on line course and the failures I have I now know are not process related but rather to do with the specific leaves I am working with and the chemistry involved. How I wish I had paid more attention in chemistry class but trial and error brings a certain understanding to the process
