December eco prints - Silver Dollar Gum and Small Leafed maple Samples

The silver dollar gum on the left is showing increased golden colouration. I have never been able to extract the bright orange colours on cotton but have been successful when using silk. After doing an online course with India Flint, I discovered that sometimes the time involved with eucalyptus is much longer than some other species so I may try and replicate that on cotton to see what the result is. The small leafed maple of the right is one of my favourites and it shows drastic colour change as the Autumn draws on. It is appealing though just as it is.
