Try 2 Eco Print on natural thermofax

In completing this exercise I remembered I have tried something similar before but put the thermofax on top of the eco print. I was quite disappointed with this piece. The liquidamber (sweet gum) with iron blanket has given a nice print with good colour but the spray of leaves down each side failed to print at all. Those particular leaves were ones I dried but lost their colour in the pressing process so that might also be an indicator of whether a preserved leaf will print well. It is all still a journey of discovery for me and my favourite leaves are gone now till Spring when they will give quite a different colour in the prints. For example the liquid amber in their new growth green state will be soft buttery yellow rather than the red/purple of their Autumn glory as above
