Eucalyptus Cretata

These trees were rather young and rather prostrate. However, the fact that they were helpfully labelled made me feel I should take an interest!


I took only a few leaves, which is one of the big advantages of the eco-print technique of assessing dye potential, as India Flint has emphasised.


The grooves on the bud caps are rather lovely, I think.  The sample print… not deeply exciting, even with some help from iron!

    It’s a good sample to see that one side of the leaf gives more colour than the other, and prints better on the other. Have you tried it on wool?
