Back to eco dying

I have started my creativity Level 6 program and the main project for this class is to create a presentation of artistic similarities between Maori and Celtic art. I hope to present this in a mixed media format through a number of panels that will be joined together with a piano hinge mechanism so the it will be free standing but easily folded up also. I have never done piano hinge construction before so I decided to do a sample of 6 x A5 panels of eco printed materials that I can experiment with this method. Here is my first option of marigolds and maple leaves. The paper has been soaked in copper sulphate and the flowers and foliage stamped on a ferrous sulphate soaked paper towel
