The Camelia print for the heat press

I thought this print would have more blue in it but it is still attractive with its ghost prints. Lauropetulum is usually a reliable print but I guess the dry summer has decreased its tannin or something so that it is more sketchy than usual. The individual petals at the bottom really stuck to the page - - another indicator that I need to get new felts that hold water better - after a few prints the felts get to the stage that they don't fully hydrate when you put them in water. I had to soak those parts of the paper with spritzed water before I could gently lift off the red petals
