ECOPRINT in COLOR! Learn the TECHNIQUES I have taught to hundreds of students  to create gorgeous background colors on your ecoprinted pieces! This popular tutorial takes the mystery out of those gorgeous colored ecoprints you have seen and introduces you to the TECHNIQUES to create your own beautiful prints in COLOR on silk, wool, cotton or linen with the leaves and plants you have gathered from your own yard or neighborhood! Full of information about how to achieve those gorgeous colors using your preferred dyes, leaves, mordants, and the techniques which work for both protein and cellulose fibers!

All the techniques in this Tutorial can be used on all fibers such as silk, wool, cotton and linen (cellulose fibers) regardless of the dye you prefer!

I explain the dye differences in Chapter 4. Protein fibers however, will give you your best results in ecoprinting! This is NOT a Tutorial on any one specific dye group but the techniques that can be used with any dye suitable for the fabric you are working on!

Check out the details in the chapters below:
