Eco-Printing aka India Flint & More Sampling


I went back to sampling more eco-printing using India Flint's methods.

There was dyeing rather than leaf printing...

...but they weren't my marks.

Did I need to leave a body print, visible evidence I have touched the cloths and left my DNA, just as the trees have done?

Or maybe stitch into the cloth with my own dentritus, my hair?

I sampled but didn't feel the efforts added to my understanding of the trees I wanted to get to know.
