This is one heck of a an addictive craft. It is like conducting a science experiment each time. There are so many variables – water, fabric, mordant, leaves chosen, rusty goodies etc etc. Then there is the 100’s of ways you can fold up you fabric or item to create shapes.
At a recent class, to while again the time waiting for the boiling process to do its thing, we had a play with smashing flowers between fabric and paper with a hammer/mallet. Some were gorgeous like this one here, others not so attractive. 🙂
