As the number of the resulting printed pages grew, so was the general enthusiasm about learning more and immersing deeper into the Natural Dyeing process.

Next take will be introduction of Direct Contact Extraction on silk and polyamide. We are starting this coming Thursday, July 20. Come join!

The Imprints on Paper – The Process Review – Отпечатки на бумаге – Заметки по ходу процесса

My Dear Fellow-Dyers,

These are some  on the process which led to the results shown in The Imprints on Paper page of this blog.

Друзья – красильщики и сочувствующие,

Вот вам мои заметки по ходу процесса, результаты которого представлены в разделе этого блога Results – The Imprints on Paper.

Please, kindly consider!

One sunny afternoon as a most spontaneous experimenter, I got down to the contact printing on paper out of sheer curiosity without having done neither any preparation of the materials, nor study of what the other knowledgeable people were doing about the natural printing on paper.

..I set up this experiment in between my housekeeping activities..

I just bothered to pour boiling water over some dried euca, all the rest of the leaves were freshly fallen from the tree, so to say. And I got some found objects, as metal scraps and a piece of the lace which I found somewhere in the house.

Had to cut the paper, too!

 

Был солнечный полдень, и, как всегда, спонтанно я подошла к пробной контактной печати на бумаге.

Мое любопытство и непреодолимое желание скорейших результатов не оставили мне шанса ни подготовить необходимые материалы, ни вдумчиво изучить, что и как знающие люди делают в отношении эко принта на бумаге. 

И вообще, эксперимент пришлось ставить в промежутке между хоз. мероприятиями… 

Листья, сухие эвк. и свежие из-под ближайших деревьев, я залила кипятком; собрала по дому некоторые предметы: металлические кусочки, обрезки кружева.

Ну и бумагу нарезала, тоже…

Now, for what could have been done, and yet neglected,

  • Presoaking paper part;
  • Pressing the leaves flat for a few days prior to printing;

 

Теперь о том, что следовало бы сделать, однако это было упущено.

  • Замочить бумагу предварительно
  • Поместить все листья под пресс за несколько дней до эксперимента

And what is more crying,

  • The paper stack was not steamed

It was boiled in water..

..a paper at the bottom got sort of burnt:

 

 

Более вопиющие факты:

  • Стопку бумаги я не пропарила,

Я ее кипятила в воде!

ну да, нижний лист подгорел…

The last two photos show the whole arrangement with the weight (a saucepan full of water) on top, and the revealed view of the papers in water as the weight has been removed.

This is it, the story of one lazy eco printing on paper!

 

 

На последних двух фото изображена вся аранжировка с грузом сверху (казанок с водой)

и вид после того, как груз убран.

Такие вот ленивые вареники!

Вернее, ленивая контактная эко печать на бумаге…
