Plant dyeing trials & tribulations - continued
These are from a new batch I created yesterday using copper sulphate instead of the weeknd batch where I used iron sulphate. Believe it of not thay have been dried and pressed.
The results on the handmade paper are very good. The results however on the Bristol paper I used in the same pot-boil are not good ... for grounds. And though I love the images especially the rose leaf and the fuchsia flower the paper has not flattened enough for my liking. Perhaps they will be fine for covers for small books. I may dampen the Bristols and try pressing again.
