New month: Ecoprint with cotton
That was a very exciting month of Using silk screens, thank you Maggi Birchenough!!!
A new month arrived so we start with a new topic: Ecoprint on cotton. Ecoprint in 'printing leafs on fabric with help of a mordant'.
There are many tutorials on the web for ecoprint on wool or silk, the easier fiber to print on.
But, I find a special challenge in printing on cotton, not the least because I love to use these in artquilts or pojagi, so let's see where this month of experimenting will bring us!
I will post monday, wednesday and friday. And will share all I discovered, the good and the less-good ;-). Above all, will try to keep it as environmental friendly as possible.
Welcome to join me this month!
PS. I am dutch so please excuse me on forehand if english is not correct. And there might be a difference in trees and plants between our countries. Still, we have quite a few in common as well ;-) being the hardest part to find the english word for it. You can help me out if you know a more common name in the comments!
