More eucalyptus eco prints, maybe e. camaldulensis…?
A mix of dried Silver Dollar eucalyptus (roundish juvenile leaves to give yellows) and dry mature eucalyptus (camuldulensis?, to give browns ) plus some greens -real greens!- from florist filler fern that came in a bouquet my husband brought me.
Below is just a close up look at a Seeded Eucalyptus print on a silk chiffon fragment that looks to me like a passage from an abstract painting. The red blobs are the seeds.
Here are organza panels bundled with eucalyptus, ready for steaming in the turkey roaster. It took about two hours for the red-orange colours to develop, though some stayed yellow.
Next time: Eco prints for the chuppah from the Bride’s home garden
