Verdure by Mishi Fox

Eco-printing is the process of tying bundles of watercolour paper together with foliage, wrapping the bundle around a rusty tin, and boiling it in a natural dye bath. When the bundle is untied, the picture that is revealed on the paper is astonishing.
Every eco-print is a one-of-a-kind and it is impossible to recapture the same image. From the collecting of the plants, right through to unravelling each bundle; eco-printing inspires in me a creative joy and a connection to nature.
In Verdure, I used plants local to my home in The Blue Mountains. Some of the plants used are; Pouched Coral Fern, Pelargonium, Blue Grape Hyacinth, Silver gum and onion.
