Today, l am creating some more eco-dyed paper for book making. I have used heavy watercolour paper and some Eucayptus leaves from a new tree l have found . I have used some old broken wooden rulers to keep the papers flat when in the dye.
The first image is of the bundle in the main cooking pot.
Second view is a close up of the wooden rulers and the bundle! Really excited to see how this 2nd "book bundle" will turn out. I have boiled the dye for 1 hour and have now covered and leave it over night to cool down.
The last image is the first attempt l did to create eco-dyed paper. l am now sewing it and decorating it.
