The Leaf Guide// natural dyeing ebook tutorial //25 Plants for Eco-printing on CottonThis ebook covers 25 plants which eco-print well on cotton. There is information about identifying and preparing each plant, with photographs of the leaves themselves and the types of prints they produce. There is also a discussion about plant pigments, and the differences in using fresh, soaked or dry leaves to dye with. At the end are some examples of clothing and fabric dyed with different combinations of leaves, to inspire you in your own compositions. I have intentionally included plants native to Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas. Many also have a wide range as introduced plants. There is a focus on temperate zone plants, though some also grow in subtropical zones. This ebook is not a step-by-step guide to eco-printing on cotton. That is covered in my first ebook Gum Leaf Alchemy, also available in my shop. Instead, it is a sequel that deeply explores plants beyond eucalyptus. This ebook is a beautifully illustrated, 84 page PDF document that is available for download immediately after purchasing.
