Eco Dying Paper – Eco Prints

I don’t write often, but this morning I have too many photos for an Instagram post. Yesterday I tried some eco dying or eco printing.  I am not going to give a tutorial, because I followed the directions in Shannon Green‘s video which is at the bottom of this post.  Just do what she says in a pot that is NOT for food.  Here are my results.  You can hover over each image to find out what plant I used.  I think you can enlarge them too by right clicking and choosing “View Image.”

I alternated 140lb watercolor paper and plain old copy paper.  Both took the colors well.  My best were Maple, Oak, Marigold, and I love the Snowball Hydrangea.  What plants give you great results?

 

Here is the video tutorial I followed. Have fun!
