ECO DYEING WITH NATURE

Lockdown has been very challenging for everyone and motivation can be low at times, so I wondered if you might like a tutorial on eco dyeing/monoprinting, especially if you are looking for some inspiration.

This is my very first attempt at doing a speak over video so bear with me!

These stunning papers are the result of experimenting with leaves and flowers from my garden and are available, for all your immediate crafting needs, as Digital products in my Etsy Shop: TeabagartbyInfusions .... CLICK HERE......

What is Eco Dyeing/Monoprinting:
It is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, which allows for multiple originals.

This has been a wonderful experience and hope you have been inspired. You can also watch and share these videos from YouTube with the link below.

These five videos show the use of leaves and flowers from my garden - the last two using Alum Powder.

What I could do better:
1) Secure the papers with rusty chicken wire or wooden blocks, tight and flat.
2) Pop a stone at the bottom of your pan before adding the papers and a heavy stone on top.
3) 45 minutes to an hour is long enough to simmer to get good results.

Have a go and any questions feel free to get in touch.






This fourth video was an experiment using Alum Powder, a dormant that seals the plant impressions better.



This 5th video shows the final results once the papers are dried from my experiment with Alum powder. Some beautiful results.
