Gum Leaf Alchemy: Eco-Printing on Cotton

This ebook provides detailed instructions about how to eco-print on cotton and other plant fibres using eucalyptus leaves. The technique can also be used with a range of other types of leaves, so you can get to know your local colours.

This ebook is suitable for beginners looking for a step-by-step guide. Or for those who have experience eco-printing on wool or silk but want to give cotton a go.

I guide you through each step of the process, from choosing and preparing fabric and leaves, making a simple scrap metal and vinegar mordant, arranging leaves, wrapping bundles and figuring out cooking times and temperatures, to the joy of unwrapping and how to care for your eco-print creations. I spent 5 years honing my particular technique for eco-printing on cotton and am delighted to share it with you.

This beautifully illustrated, 55 page PDF is $25 (Australian dollars). Save money by buying it in my ebook bundle.
