I posted this picture on Drye Goods Studio Facebook page the other day and it got some attention along with people asking to see results because of the foil liner. It functions as a barrier, but in a small way as a mordant blanket. I have done this before and have gotten zingier colors, but maybe that was because I was using fresh plant material, this was all done with dry leaves.
So here you go:
|Vine Maple, the yellow is the "ghost" from the top of the leaf, the darker print is from the underside or veined side.|
|A side by side comparison of oak with and with foil barriers. The one on the left is without; the prints are a brown/plum and the background has more "noise" in it. The one on the right is a different shade of brown and the background is cleaner.|
Not sure about the yellow and brown as a color combo, I may do something else with them while staring out the window watching the snow pile up.
