Resilient Teabags

The laminated teabag fabric did not print as I expected so I mordanted it in tannin and then alum before once again placing leaves, an iron blanket and steaming it for two hours. The fabric held together much better than I had thought it would and here is the result pre gel medium to seal the teabags. The leaves are liquidambar and small leafed maple. the background colours of the teabag have washed out somewhat but it will be interesting to see what happens once the gel medium is applied
