Hand Dyed Paper

Day 3/365

DSC_0716 - Version 2For a few weeks now I’ve been playing around with paper dying using indigo.  But before I started using real indigo I did many tests with watercolour paints (indigo-colour, of course) and I wanted to share some of my favourites with you.

I cannot stop thinking of blue and white ceramics when I look at this one, the pattern is lovely!

DSC_0745The resulting papers are lovely but they just aren’t the same depth and richness of colour as true indigo-dyed papers.  I’ll go over some of the things I made with the true indigo dyed papers in a few days.  And at some point in the future I’ll do a post about the actual hand-dying process and how messy/fun it really is!!
