    It was an eco dye playday yesterday with friend, Sandy. Inspired by India Flint’s Eco Colour. We used dried and fresh vegetation—huge surprise that the dried leaves left so much color. We used Stonehenge printmaking paper and Watercolor paper with leaves packed in between sheets. The sandwiches were bound together then boiled for 1.5 hours in a solution of alum and fireplace ash solution. The blue shade comes from a blueberry! We’re ready to try other solutions for boiling!
