Last fall I went to a workshop with a bunch of paper makers that were working with India Flint's steam technique and was it fun! I couldn't wait to start in on it again in the spring-but that was so far away! Then I read in some magazine (that I can't find now-sorry no link!) about doing the same thing with vegetables from the frig-WOW-Nan's science project can now be turned into Nan's art project! Perfect!
1. Do you ever walk by a plastic bag for months and wonder what is in it-but never take the time to look? Well, I finally took a peek in just such a bag and lo and behold there were silk scarves left over from a sun printing demo I did so I ran them into the house and started digging through the veggie drawer. Cabbage? Great! Huckleberries turning slightly scary in a bag? Wonderful! And then of course, yellow and red onion skins too. Wet the silk and then lay it all out.
