Eco printing experiments

Here are some ecoprints from the last couple of months… I find this technique a bit hit or miss but I love the process and the thrill when I unroll a bundle.

Little hands helping me above, and the results below.

Above on the right is a print made with muscari (grape hyacinth). I must try this again next Spring.

I collected some fallen camelia flowers after a storm and was blown away by the results below. I’ve kept some extra flowers in the freezer for more experiments. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how clearly the flowers printed.

  1. These are so beautiful, Rebecca. I am chomping at the bit to have a studio again and get doing some dying and painting with dyes. What have you done with these pieces?

    1. Ooh I can imagine you’re so looking forward to having a studio set up! Fingers crossed it won’t be too much longer!

      These pieces of fabric are just sitting in a box.. I always get too attached to fabric and worry about ruining it, which is a bit silly as it has no use to me just being stored away! I’d love to get into some hand stitching and use all my bits of fabric to make something..
