|I see koi in water! |
This is a paper piece by one of my workshop participants. The orange is actually dahlia petals.
|Scattered petal and leaves in natural pulp. |
The fibre for this pulp is also from linen and cotton fabric offcuts from Emily.
|Sheets of damp paper drying between wool blankets sandwiched between two wood boards with weights on top.|
|Helicopters or maple keys laid onto a newly formed wetleaf. |
I can't remember if this was to be a deboss or if she ended up putting pulp on top to laminate the keys in.
|Workshop participants wet posts after being in the press. |
The next step is to put each newly pressed sheet between dry felts.
|Tiny sheets with plant material laminated in it.|
|My hands couching a new wetleaf on wet felts.|
|My daughter helping me transfer a post of just pressed wet leaves onto blotters. |
The wet leaves get sandwiched between the blotters and then they will go into the air dryer.
