Dec Eco Print Journal

With surgery I didn't get to do as much recording of leaf prints in December but over the next few days I will post some of the ones I did get. December in new Zealand is early Summer but the temperatures have been quite cool this year. This purple laurepetulum has given a lovely pinkish print with a fine outline from the iron blanket. My iron blanket is almost exhausted so I will need to make up another bath. The cotton fabri c had a sumac tannin bath and then alum mordant before being steamed for 2 hours with an iron blanket dipped paper towel. Because I am recoding and placing the samples in a folder I write on them the details before mounting them so that I can always have the details attached to the sample
