Using a lace carrier

This print was made using a fairly solid scrap of lace, unmordanted and dipped in a natural dye and placed over the hydrangea leaves before steaming. You can sort of see where the shape of the actual lace ends and the dye has "run into the white areas. I think the lace effect would have been more apparent had I used a more open lace but it has given thought for more use of this type of process should I want to use it again in the future - especially the idea of using an unmordanted dye carrier to colour the background.
