Printing Diary – Day 4.

I can’t show you everything I created during my printing sessions, because most of the time I’m so busy I have no time to make photos, and some processes are fast, so I mast act even faster) But some processes are really slow, like this ‘painting’ on textile I created completely of tagetes. Firstly I punched every leaf and petal with a hammer so that the pigment from the plants penetrated the cotton fabric. Secondly, I rolled the fabric into a tight roll and boiled it over low heat for about two hours. Then I rested it for 5 days for a bit of fermentation… As a result, today I unrolled it and got my first textile eco-print!
