Today I want to show an experiment I've done this weekend. It's about experimenting with natural inks obtained from some vgetables and flowers, as parsley, carrots, pumpkin, cabbage, eggplant, then mixed with water into glass pots. I added water to dilute the mixture and shaked the content very well until obtain an homogeneous mix.
I took my wash brush and put over the bristles an amount of the mix ink using a dropper. Then I brushed on the paper randomly until I see all the surface covered with the ink and the "waterous" color was completely absorbed by the paper. Then I laid the papers to dry slowly and naturally.
The result was a wonderful collection of 44 painted papers plenty of colors, like pastels!.
