This weeks eco printing

Silk scarf printed with gum leaves

I’ve spent a few days doing some eco printing this week. Mostly scarves and upcycled cotton tees. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve discovered some new ways to mordant to get different results so it’s been educational as well.

Here’s a few of my results

Silk scarf with gum leaves
Primrose leaf eco print on calico
Maple leaf on organic cotton tee
Rose leaves on silk scarf
Maple leaves on calico
Hakea leaves round neck and silver dollar gum leaves on cotton tee.
This time the silver dollar leaves printed green!

more eucalyptus leaves on silk

It was a fun week!!!

Now I have to soak some more leaves because I used them all up!
