The Silk Tree Fluffs Hapa-zome

My report on the Fluffs wouldn’t be complete without this little complement.

The Hammering was performed on the untreated cotton fabric. I actually used a spoon for the sake of my mom’s table.

Talking of my Hapa-zome experience in general I cannot say that I have ever enjoyed either hammering in particular, or working with anything heavy, such as a stone for example, on the fabric surface… Well, my “spoon approach” is somewhat amateur I’d say… But this way I can work  freely not fearing to damage the fabric and have too coarse of a print…

I have to say the Fluffs print dearly! In comparison to other flower material which may give a bit of a blur though bright prints, these leave a well-defined graphic mark. Which should be considered for the further enquiry in terms of the color fastness and the effects from different mordants treatment.

Мой отчет о цветах шелкового дерева

был бы неполным без этого небольшого дополения

Я не могу сказать, что японская техника хапа-зом так уж меня увлекает возможностью поработать молотком или чем-то тяжелым, вроде камня, по растительному материалу, выложенному по поверхности ткани.

Скорее я предпочитаю несколько аматорский подход в виде ложки.

По крайней мере таким образом я не рискую, увлекшись, повредить поверхность ткани, пускай мне и приходится прилагать больше усилий.

Могу сказать, что “пушки” отпечатываются исключительно хорошо. В отличие от другого растительного материала, который дает более расплывчатый и нечеткий след, эти оставляют вполне четкий отпечаток.

Хорошо бы в дальнейшем уточнить стойкость отпечатков к свету и мокрым обработкам!
