Strawberry Dye on Paper
In the past post "Strawberry Project" I mentioned about strawberry dye on paper. I finally tried it and it turned out to be a beautiful hue. I found simple natural dye methods on some Japanese blogs so I referred them. Although all the method were for fabrics, I gave a try on watercolor papers. For fabrics, you need a container to soak in, but for watercolor papers, I just used a paint brush to color the papers.
This is my first "mixed media: strawberry dye and hand-torn newspaper" art. Not too bad for the first try!?
