Eco-printing Results & a Decision

More results from attempts to Eco-print using tree material from Douglas-fir ecosystem
Arbutus berries & leaves - minimal print

Just a trace of staining from arbutus leaves

Cedar boughs

Cedar boughs acted as a resist when the pot's water level covered part of the bundle
The water had accumulated a dye solution from previous steaming
Choosing to work with cotton and natural dyes is a challenge

I want to work with cotton so I have decided to not continue with natural dyeing for this body of work
