Still Playing Around with Heat Press Botoanicals

There is always surprise when the botanicals come our of the heat press. The yellow in this one is ink weed - it doesn't print at all in a traditional bundle. The flowers are large dark pink camellias with yellow stamens and the lacey mauve leaves are heuchera leaves. all dipped in ferrous sulphate. The background texture has come from an excess of ferrous sulphate and the squashing of the camellia flowers in the press. It is almost like a water colour. Still haven't perfected printing on cotton fabric in the press
