Impossible Things

"Things are only impossible if you stop to think about them."
Lindsay Eagar

Trying out carrier blankets, used to add mordants and dyes to eco prints, I haven't a clue as to what I am doing, but once I figure out it you will be the first to know! I see the beginnings of minty green, so it won't be all bad whatever happens.

This is a Japanese Butterbur, a friend gave it to me and I finally found something it will print on! It has beautiful big leaves, looks sort of like a rhubarb, and it turned into a challenge. Here it is on paper with copper as the mordant. This was an experiment in rolling paper for steaming, I think I will try it again but pressed next time. I finally have a pot big enough to do fairly good sized sheets of paper. It is an old turkey fryer pot; it is very, very tall!
