A Circular Comp0osition

Still Using the tannin dipped cotton and it was another that was in the pool noodle roll. I applied the mistyfuse to the underside of the cotton and then fused the sheets of watercolour paper across the width of the fabric so that while I had individual sheets of paper that I could cut apart after steaming, I could roll the width of the fabric around the rod. This lot includes purple cotinus with a double coreopsis in the middle and Japanese Maple leaves around the outside. Again they are dipped in the stamp pad of ferrous sulphate and the leaves are place vein side down. This gives a good iron blanket impression without staining any of the surround fabric. Fusing the fabric and paper helps to eliminate wrinkles during the steaming process.
