Eco Printing on Paper Part 2 :-)

Here we go, part 2 of eco printing on paper, third batch! As I mentioned yesterday, I didn't want to dispose of the rusty iron water from the second batch, so I picked a few more of those lovely pink flowers from the bush which looks like a currant bush and a couple of other bits, and put them in the pot with the used water. The results were so rich and deep, but more deep rusty brown rather than the greys from the day before






You know, once you are bitten by a particular bug, you just want to do more and more. So of course I wanted to make a 4th batch! I had disposed of the used iron water and needed more rusty bits to add to the lovely clean once-rusty iron bits I already had in the post. DH to the rescue with these bits -


I think I added much more vinegar to the water than in batch 2 and 3. I loved the results.
I folded some of the papers this time, Rorschach test style :-)




I think this rose leaf print is my favourite -

although this one is really fascinating, too. I used just green aquilegia foliage, and I was so surprised to see the reds, and especially the glittery silver! -

What does one do, when one is supposed to tie the bundle up really tightly with string and doesn't have any string? One uses lace, of course!

The two very dark grey 'strings' ( net lace and sari silk ribbon ) were in both the second and third batch pots and went very dark grey. The other cotton lace was used only in the 4th batch and turned from a brilliant white into a very lovely light taupey grey. Definitely a bonus -



Now I can't wait for leaves to appear on the trees, and for more pretty weeds to grow in the hedgerows. I want to experiment some more :-).

Oh Liz you have really been smitten - thank goodness! And look how much richer and deeper the colours have turned out with the iron water sitting and being reused with added iron and vinegar.
Absolutely gorgeous dear friend. I just now need to see what you create with these!
Big hugs for big results!

Hi Liz, Your eco dyed items are fantastic!! Love how each batch is just a little bit different ... superb!! I have just recently taken an interest in this process and love to see what others are up to. I haven't yet tried it but hope to soon. Might have to harvest some bits off my house plants as we still have snow on the ground here in Northern Alberta, Canada. I have however been soaking some white buttons in a bag of rusty pieces for about a week now, in the hopes of distressing some buttons...so excited to see how that turns out.
Have fun and take care,
Hugs,
Helen White

Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get an ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a love spell for me. 22hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he missed me so much, Oh My God! I was so happy, and today I am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and I thank the powerful spell caster Dr.Wealthy, he is so powerful and I decided to share my story here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Wealthy for help now..Here’s his email, wealthylovespell@gmail.com

Pregnancy spell
Love spell
Penis enlargement spell
