Eco Printing on Paper

By Jude Kingshott on behalf of Brunhilde Scheidmeir

Join Jude as she shares her colleague and friend’s technique on eco-printing on paper.

This is a technique that can be used on fabric or paper.

Jude will be using A3 heavy watercolour paper and a selection of leaves.

It is important to have a strong contact between the leaves and the paper and brush the mordant on the underside of the leaf. The results are a great selection of the wonderful colours that nature gives.
