More Fun with the Heat Press

The beauty of using the press is that it doesn't take 90 minutes to get a result. Just 3 minutes. This is liquidamba and lauropetulum leaves on a cheap water colour paper dipped in ferrous sulphate solution. The blue has come from a procion dipped blanket of interfacing. This is dipped into the dye to take up colour but not fixed so the dye discharges. I have used this with natural dyes a long time ago. I did try a resist of gell medium using a thermofax screen but it has not taken. I am having lots of fun experimenting at the moment. Just using paper at the moment but I will move into using cotton shortly.
